bug#46578: 28.0.50; configure.ac warnings with autoconf 2.71

Andy Moreton-3
In GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (x86_64-w64-mingw32)
Repository revision: cead0ea38e3e15a544f7374b2e831623bda37f1d
Repository branch: master

Building from a clean tree, I observe the following warnings:

$ ./autogen.sh

You can now run './configure'.

Perhaps some adjustment is needed for autoconf 2.71.
