Is there a way to speed 'automake' up?

While you are probably looking for system-independent advice, the best results I've had with speeding up ephemeral builds is to simply use /dev/shm for backing storage on Linux, i.e. first try to put build directories there ($XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is also fine on modern Linux). If the installation is not needed later on, you can also put the installation path there.

This assumes your development system has a few GB of RAM to spare, but nowadays RAM is cheap.
