Ehh?   Dirk meant, that if the numbers after the #line directives were
hardcoded in the configure file (as it was the case for autoconf 2.13),
deleting lines in that file would make those numbers invalid.  Like

% cat bla
#line 2 "bla"
% delete-stuff bla; cat bla
#line 2 "bla"

Obviously it's not line 2 anymore (it's the first now), but you wouldn't
have had changed that number.  But anyway that's mood with new autoconf,
as the numbers there are not hardcoded.
