In my experience with developing many actual programs using autoconf, the checks in the configure script are a direct consequence of porting to some platform or another.
My experience says otherwise. Things like checking C++ related stuff (and even Fortran!) in projects that are pure C. And the sucessful checks for C89 followed by checks for individual C89 standardized functions is widespread, and almost certainly because there's some autoconf macro that does all of it. It's just stupid and annoying.
