Does anyone here use or know of an active system where plain
 rm -f
with no arguments fails? I mean, exits with bad status?

I thought that systems deriving from OpenSolaris (e.g. Illumos, OpenIndiana, etc.) had that issue until ksh93 was fixed recently. However, testing in an empty directory on a system without the upated ksh93 this looks ok to me:

$ rm -f ; echo $?
$ rm -f * ; echo $?

so the issue that Automake encountered before must not be exactly that.
