Those don't hurt at all for the final configure size.  As long as they
aren't requested by some macro call in, they won't end up in
configure.  Ergo the removing of those macros don't change the size of

It at least also deletes the comment lines which hide some created
files (in the libtool configuration, ltdll.c and impgen.c).  It also
removes comment from some other generated files (but there really just
comment).  In general I'm extremely nervous about deleting anything except
empty lines (and even those I don't like, as then debugging the configure
script is more difficult, because harder to read).

Which compilers don't like #line's > 32767?  We could change the way those
numbers are actually emitted, instead of having to reduce configure.
