You should be able to make a wrapper around whatever tool you've got.
If you publish such a wrapper on free terms you might even be able to
get a note about it in the autoconf manual.

Personally I'd be more inclined to bring weird and wonderful cross
compilers to a common model, rather than to adapt autoconf to them.
