[Proj] Indefinite delays with project library

The biggest mistake most newly autotooled projects make is to allow the
config.h to become publicly visible via the project's public header
files.  (And some long-established projects do it to).

Normally, public header files shouldn't care about "gee does this system
have a working vfork()".  However, *types* matter -- and it's a bit of
an art to make sure that the types used in your public header file don't
depend on macros defined in config.h (like HAVE_UINT64_T, etc).

I don't know if I count as a "guru" but I'll try to take a look sometime
in the next week.
