IIUC there have been discussions but no plans, no.  Quagmire was
a proof-of-concept replacement of autoconf with something based on GNU
Make, but I don't think it went very far (and I'm no fan of GNU Make's
syntax, especially its inability to properly quote some characters).

I think the better direction is to add a Make-based step into
autoconf, which at first would only contain a single rule running the
original big-heap-of-checks then bit-by-bit split the different checks
into separate rules so they can be run in parallel.

But Someone™ needs to take this on.
