I'm seeing this warning this morning:

Is it necessary to AC_RUN_IFELSE here? Is AC_CHECK_DECLS not sufficient for some reason?

It strikes me that this test you currently have in configure.m4 really should be a run-time test, and that all you need in configure.m4 should be an AC_CHECK_DECLS to see if AF_IB exists.
