What you describes are two bugs that were present in old
versions of Automake.  Please look at the Automake version
number at the top of the generated Makefile you mentioned.  I
believe you are not using Automake 1.8 as you think (it probably
is Automake 1.4).
You're right, it does work now. However, what it really strange is that I don't have automake 1.4 installed at all, and my older version is 1.6.3, which also work when explicitly called. My guess is there was some old automake cache lying around. As I don't have generated makefiles anymore, I can't check :/

Unlikely: Automake 1.8 requires Autoconf 2.58 or greater.
2.59 actually, I was confused by the AC_PREREQ(2.53) at the start of
