The odd thing is that even though it complains, it still generates the correct 
Makefile in the first case:

SYMFILES = $(srcdir)/uni.h $(shell $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -E $(srcdir)/header.c | 
$(AWK) -f $(srcdir)/script.awk)

Does automake need to be $(shell ...)-aware?

This is not a bug, as Nick has clearly explained here (BTW, thanks
Nick for this!):

So I'm closing it.

Philip, if you've been confused on this issue by the automake manual,
and have specific complaints or suggestions for improvement, feel free
to open a new bug report.  Thanks.


No, not confused.  Just seems counter-intuitive that a GNU utility would have 
the default behavior of complaining when you use other GNU utilities... or 
syntax particular to them.

It might make more sense to have automake assume that it is being used with 
gmake, and then have a specific option to explicitly turn off that behavior.
