Are there by any chance lines like this
| m4_include([m4/your_macro_file.m4])

at the end of aclocal.m4?  Then everything should work fine.
Oh, or are you invoking aclocal directly?  Then you should do
  aclocal -I m4

ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS are only respected by the rebuilding rules put in and by autoreconf.
