I don't know if it's possible.  Configuring the build tree really
seems the job of ./configure, not make.

One way to achieve the same effect is to use AC_CONFIG_LINKS in  To preserve the abstraction of foo you could list
the AC_CONFIG_LINKS commands in foo/links.m4 and have
m4_include([foo/links.m4]) at the appropriate place in

Or call a setup script with AC_CONFIG_COMMANDS.
