My kneejerk reaction is "no", because autogen.sh is
for the early stages of automatically-generating files
needed for 'make'; it does not use 'make' or 'gcc'
or etc. itself.

It's not practical for autogen.sh to check for all
possible things that can go wrong during
a 'make' (missing headers, libraries, bad compilers, etc.),
and a missing 'make' falls into the category of
"possible things that can go wrong during a 'make'".
