The easier part is addressed by Jeff's macro, or the AC_FC_PP_DEFINE
macro I've recently added to git Autoconf.  There's also AC_FC_PP_SRCEXT
which is new.

Unless you try to do configure tests for preprocessed Fortran, that's
about as much as you'll need for Autoconf.  I haven't done the needed
changes for better pp-Fortran support in Automake yet.  So what we've
been using in our projects so far as a workaround is something like the
file below which I've then included from all files that
process Fortran.

One thing that you can't do with this is per-target flags (because then
automake will generate per-target rules and the suffix rules below will
not be used).  As a workaround you can avoid per-target flags, require
GNU make, and use its target-specific flags instead, as in

But in time we should have automake updated to provide all this
seamlessly, I hope.

Hope that helps.
