I am again bit by automake not being able run the test suite on systems

Which patch are you referring to exactly?

With 1.11.3 the implementation is totally different and the patch has no hope
of applying.

How does this later patch of mine fares?


Caveat: it works for GNU make only, and it's *really ugly*.  So ugly that I 
feel like applying it to automake proper.

I have not tried this patch, and indeed it is really ugly.

Since another Automake release is forthcoming, please treat this email as a 'ping' that this problem still exists in Automake and that there is still ongoing impact.
