Yes, this is fine. Thanks.

The reason is the ordering of assignments in the file:
AC_ARG_WITH comes early in the file, XEN_CONFIG_DIR= is assigned much later.

It seems the assignments for CONFIG_DIR and XEN_CONFIG_DIR can be moved up, 
because $sysconfdir is expected to be set already. As a result the new 
AC_ARG_WITH= can continue to use "$XEN_CONFIG_DIR/scripts" for the default 
case. I assume the current ordering is to have a separate AC_ARG_WITH and 
AC_SUBST section.
