Subject: autoconf AC_PATH_PROGS question

I have a which does:
AC_PATH_PROGS(SHUTDOWN, shutdown shutdown.bsd, no)

and this fails as a normal user because autoconf will create a script
which does test -x /sbin/shutdown, and shutdown is not executable for
anyone. Is theres a clean way to fix this in autoconf, or shall I
remove the check from the generated script by hand ?
