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

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

I certainly agree - but it seems like a regression in Automake where
a structure that worked for several years (and several automake
versions) now stopped working.

I'm looking for any hints or ideas as to what changed or what is causing
the failure...

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.

Thanks for testing!
