'configure' script not supported on AIX 5.2

I am running Autoconf 2.58 on AIX 5.2 with the GNU 3.3.2 compiler. I am trying
to compile Tomcat jsvc from the commons-daemon project and when I perform the
'autoconf' step to create the 'configure' script it works fine. But when I
execute the 'configure' script, I get a "Host operating system not supported"
error message. If I add 'aix5.2.0.0' into the 'configure' script by copying the
SYSV OS entry for the host OS check, it then runs OK, but my fear is that the
SYSV options are not correct. Because after the 'configure' runs without errors
and I execute 'make', it doesn't run because the Makedefs executes 'make -C',
and the -C option is not supported on the GNU Make for AIX. If I remove the -C
from the Makedefs file, the make will run but it errors out with a bunch of
errors for each program file.  This is where I left it and am thinking that
this all stems from an incorrect 'configure' script created by Autoconf.

How do I get Autoconf 2.58 to generate a supported 'configure' script for AIX

Thanks for your help,
