Bzzt.  At this point, you are not building Automake.  You are building
whatever package this configure comes from: somewhere in $PATH.
Looks to me like you shouldn't do such thing, if it hurts.  ;-)

The Automake package does not contain a "src" directory.

Neither a config header (no C sources near or far here).

Hmm, dunno.  Whatever package you're building may have a benign doc

No released version of Automake has 585 tests (thanks Alexandre for the
stats table!), neither does CVS HEAD.  Or did you mean without SKIPped
or XFAILed tests?
