Unfortunately, no.  Automake is targeted at the (mostly) portable
subset of make, which is much smaller than what GNU make supports.

If we had a good build tool, and didn't have to rely on make, then we
wouldn't really need automake at all.  (Ideally I'd prefer something
even better than GNU make.)

I think Akim does.
