Not that I believe that I could help you, but I can try to make life
easier for those who can:

Could you please be more specific?  As in:

What exactly does not work for you?  In what circumstances?  On which
system, which `make', which automake version, where's the reproducible
example, which part of are you actually talking about?  Have
you studied the Autoconf manual section about portability yet?

C'mon Harald, this isn't your first bug report.
