The exact same project and 'make dist' with automake-1.15 builds fine.

It has something to do with non-recursive makefile structure common
to some gnu projects.

The problem may very well have to do with parts obtained from gnulib or an implementation artifact from the template Makefiles.

I did a test build of GraphicsMagick using Illumos '/usr/bin/make' under OmniOSce and under Ubuntu 18.04 LTS using 'bmake'. The test builds succeeded (even parallel builds), including the test suite. GraphicsMagick uses a non-recursive build, but does not depend on gnulib or 'po' files.
