That's good to hear.  What I wondering though is what are macros such as 
AM_CONFIG_HEADER doing in if it doesn't have anything to do
with automake?

The truth is that the introduction of automake came with significant
changes to (see rev 1.47 vs 1.48).  It is not at all unlikely
that configure now does tests it didn't use to do, and that this causes
problems Nicholai is seeing.
