- From time to time while compiling a program an error message will display
regarding "Present But Cannot Be Compiled" with a notation to report this
to the 'AC_PACKAGE_NAME'.

First, is this really necessary since the package does compile and
secondly, who or what is this 'AC_PACKAGE_NAME'?

"AC_PACKAGE_NAME" is a macro that is defined by autoconf.

AFAIK, if such a message appears during compilation, the wrong version
of autoconf is being used. It would be interesting to know if you
compile a port, because in this case the dependency is wrong.
If you downloaded a source tarball from a website, you should check
the requirements what the package needs to compile successfully.
autoconf and automake should be listed there, too.
