Can't say I understand all of autoconf but I read enough of the info pages
to be able to do this ! :-) I couldn't find an existing test that covers
this, so I used your example to make one; patch attached. It detects my
linux box properly as 'doesn't zero-fill when right-shifting a negative
number', but I haven't a Cray J90 handy to test the opposite ;)

Feel free to change the wording to something a bit less... wordy, though ;)
Oh, and don't forget to run autoheader & automake before checking in.
