Yeah, I guess Autoconf needs a patch there.  Could you try configuring
  ./configure MAKE=make.itx ac_cv_prog_make_make_itx_set=no

please?  If an autoconf rerun is triggered, you _need_ 2.61 to avoid a
related bug.

Oh, for that you can try to use AM_MAKEFLAGS.

Not yet.  Maybe we still have some nonportable construct in there; or
Interix make figures something out wrongly.  Dunno.

Cheers, and thanks,
