That is what we do when we add new macros to xorg-macros, but....

We generally don't copy macros from the autoconf-archive into xorg-macros,
we just use them as is - adding *.m4 files to packages that need them
(especially when it's just one or two packages, not most of X.Org's 200+
packages).  See for instance, xserver/m4/ac_define_dir.m4
Is there any reason not to do that here?   Why should we add multiple levels
of indirection to keep in sync?
