I went ahead and coded up my own version of the patch to check for AEDT 
explicitly.  I can't test it, though, because I am having problems 
getting a newer version of Autoconf to run on my OS X laptop (OS X comes 
with 2.52).  If someone can give it a go and fix any errors on it 
hopefully this will do the trick.
