I've used emake and always get this error irrespective of package.
Ofcourse, this happens only when something changes and automake
decides to recreate configure and then rerun it.

All I've been able to trace is that emake (probably) runs the configure script
on one of its agents and that creates the conftest.make file but when configure
invokes make (really emake) over this conftest.make file that gets hived off to 
agent and that doesnt know anything about this file since this is not an 
stated generated file ... Checkout the macro expansion in configure.

And no I havent been able to work around this problem so far.

If you rerun emake after this error, it generally reruns correctly ...

I have no idea.  I don't know iperf, neither emake, I don't even have
idea whether iperf uses automake at all.  The iperf maintainers may be
in a much better position to answer this; otherwise, you'd first have to
provide a lot more information.

HTH.  Cheers,
