When building an extension I've written, aclocal displays a warning that the 
macro PHP_CHECK_SIZEOF is "underquoted." I have confirmed this by checking line 
1098 of the acinclude.m4 file that gets copied after phpize is run. 

According to the autoconf documentation, all macros should be surrounded by 

Expected result:
No warnings should be displayed when the aclocal command is executed.

Actual result:
acinclude.m4:1098: warning: underquoted definition of PHP_CHECK_SIZEOF
acinclude.m4:1098:   run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
acinclude.m4:1098:   or see
