Better use `:' instead of `true'.  I'm not sure `:' is more portable,
but at least it's a built-in in more shells than `true'.

I suggest separating `test for features and display results' from `set
variables', so that you can enclose the tests within AC_CACHE_CHECK
and still get the variables properly set even when the result was
taken from the cache.
