Re: [PATCH] [4/14] Completes renaming of files to .ac

Perhaps the best solution is both sets of patches.

Yours to modify the build system so it can work with either extension,
old versions, and other imported packages.

Mine to complete binutils-gdb and gcc moving from to .ac
extension.  There have been several commits spread out across the last
year slowly moving the migration along.  People have been slowly
changing the extension over in their areas for the past year, but not
getting everything moved over at once.

Finish it up, have consistency, use the "prefered" extension, prevent
the warning about old ".in" extensions, make it robust so it works
with the old extension, and get combined builds working again.
