I'm not sure I understand.  The code in question uses something like
  See $(subdir)/$(TEST_SUITE_LOG).

which should expand to the full relative patch of the log file, starting
from the top builddir in a package.

Is $(subdir) wrong in your Makefile, or are you using a package
hierarchy with sub-configure scripts?  In the latter case, autotools so
far never produce relative paths wrt. the topmost package.
