Looks good. I presume you remove the initialisation of
LIBZMQ_EXTRA_C[XX]FLAGS at the beginning of configure.in so that these can
be overriden?

What does AC_REQUIRE actually mean?

This is good but please make it so that it doesn't muck with the shared
library setting. We already have --enable-shared/--disable-shared so anyone
who wants a specific combination can use that.

Also I'm still in the dark as to how the AC_REQUIRE stuff works, it's now
slightly less obvious what order things get called in, but I guess as long
as it works that's not too big an issue.
