Do you use Automake in addition to Autoconf?  If no: you can just do
something like this in
  if $the_compiler_is_IBMS; then
    FDEFS=`echo " $DEFS" | sed 's| -D| -WF,-D|g'`

and use $(FDEFS) in the rules in

If you do use Automake: please use separate files for
Fortran and non-Fortran code.  Put this in the ones for Fortran:

Similarly, I guess, for CPPFLAGS and AM_CPPFLAGS.

I have this issue on the list of things to eventually fix in Automake,
but not yet a patch, nor a hurry.  ;-)

As another possible workaround (at least for DEFS), can you use a config

Hope that helps.
