Subject: [PATCH 03/20] libtoolize: fix infinite recursion in m4

Some projects use this construct in configure.ac:

  m4_define([version], m4_include([version]))
  pkg_version=version

When the m4_include builtin is undefined (as was done in
libtoolize and extract-trace scripts), the call to this 'version'
macro enters an infinite recursion (until ENOMEM).  So rather
re-define all potentially dangerous macros by empty strings,
suggested by Eric Blake.

While we are on it, merge the macro-"blacklist" with similar list
implemented in gettext, except for 'm4_esyscmd'.  It's kept
defined because we already trace AC_INIT macro for package
version, while it is often specified by
m4_esyscmd(git-version-gen).  Similarly to m4_include, m4_esyscmd
might be opt-in-blacklisted in future.

* gl/build-aux/extract-trace (_G_mini): Redefine trace-breaking
macros to empty strings rather than undefining those.  Use 'dnl'
for comments.
* bootstrap: Likewise, sync with extract-trace.
* NEWS: Document.
* NO-THANKS: Mention Hiroyuki Sato.
