#294: Autoconf trouble with autoconf >= 2.64

 yet another set of autoconf problems. The attached patch fixes them.
 Without it, autogen.sh will not run (correctly) on systems with autoconf
 >= 2.64

 Fixes include:
 * `configure.in:33: warning: AC_REQUIRE: 'AC_PROG_CC' was expanded before
 it was required`
   ** which will lead to
   ./configure: line xxxx: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
   ./configure: line xxxx: `yes:'

 * warning: AC_LANG_CONFTEST: no AC_LANG_SOURCE call detected in body

 * Subtlety involving AC_CHECK_HEADER, that lead to
    ./configure: line 6779: ac_fn_c_check_header_compile: command not found
    messages when running configure
