   I doubt there would be any need for code changes to GNU make at all.

i think it would be cool if automake supported GNU make specifically,
creating from  a would
imply some automake option "gnu-make-only", while automake option
"gnu-make" would create both and  those who
use option "gnu-make" would need to include GNUmakefile in
of course.

then, GNU make can DTRT since it prefers GNUmakefile over Makefile, and
other make programs can still function (unless option "gnu-make-only" is
used by the package maintainer in which case that should be mentioned in
README or somesuch).
