I have been dealing with this situation for many (11?) years (first in ImageMagick, and then in GraphicsMagick). It is really difficult to integrate Automake with Perl's Make::Maker because Perl's Make::Maker does not observe any normal conventions and has a mind of its own based on whatever options were used way back when perl itself was built with some other compiler. Nightmare is an understatement. Regardless, I suggest to take a look at ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick Automake makefiles to see how it may be done.
