this is not exactly true.  The prefix is added to program_transform_name
by AC_ARG_PROGRAM, which is usually called by AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE.

Thus it should be enough if you place this

case $program_prefix in
NONE) program_prefix=foo ;;

somewhere between AC_INIT and AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE.

I have a generalized proposal in mind.  Stay tuned, I hope to post it
in a few days...

Have a nice day,
