I do not see how automake would have avoided this problem. It supports the avoidance of recursive make, which is good practice to be encouraged. It may construct a Makefile with the same effect as the one used now, depending on what the author put in the Makefile.* If the version of make used is buggy, it will still be buggy when reading the generated Makefile. Use of automake is unconnected with the bug in make, as far as I can tell.

Maybe the author should rewrite his Makefile to use different macros now that the problems have been reported, but that's nothing to do with automake use.
