Yes, presumably because Autoconf did not try the exit declaration that
would please that MSVC version. It's incredible the developers have
managed to use at least 4 different, incompatible declarations of a
standardized function, changing it for almost every release.
This is why Autoconf-2.60 does not try to find one any more.

I would _really_ recommend using 2.60 only for doing work with MSVC.
