Ok, that means the implementation is reduced to:

   rc = try_using_af_ib();
   rc = try_the_other_way();

Right? If so, I don't see why you need the AC_TRY_RUN -- if RDMACM is easily detectable as to which way it is compiled (because it has, for example, different fields), then AC_CHECK_DECLS should be enough, right?

I must be missing something...?
