What do you mean by "allow it to be required".  You can require it now
for your package using autotools.

Right, and my original question was to ask "how do I require GNU Make in
an autotoolised package?" I'm still don't see an "official" answer to
that question, only an autoconf archive macro.

Oh, you expect an official answer or an official macro?

I was asking whether there is a macro that is already part of autotools. Or indeed, part of any other widely used package, and with the following:

In fact, gnulib already has a "gnu-make" module that adds a conditional which you can use to add GNU make-specific code.

I now have two answers: a macro in gnulib and a macro in autoconf-archive. Probably worth working out if the one in autoconf-archive is now redundant.
