It is strange, my version of gsl (Debian Sid) defines it (and defines an
alias for AM_PATH_GSL). From what I can see in the configure, the builbots
have gsl in a non-standard location, so perhaps the autoreconf part is
not getting the same gsl installation.
I don't like the idea of including gsl, but I like Miguel's idea of
including just the macro.
