For mmap you want something like this[1]. I have not fully read the macro but I think the AC_FUNC_MMAP runs into the mmap_min_addr restriction[2]. But as most people use a binary version of the VM there is little point to check that the system that built the software had a working version (and since the late 90s mmap generally works).
