Sorry, but you lost me here completely.  First off, the zsh package does
not use Automake _at all_.  Second, I just told you how I produced
identical zsh/Src/Makefile and zsh/Src/Modules/Makefile files with the
two different Autoconf versions you are talking about.

If you are seeing any difference with respect to Autoconf version, and
you think the difference is indication of a bug, then please show me how
to reproduce it exactly.  Best if you start off with empty directories
in both cases, and just cut and paste what you do, and what output you
see.  I want to see the bug right before my face, not described in
words, but in plain command output.  Thanks.

The part that
  cd Src/Modules && make

doesn't build anything (which you seem to construe as a bug).  Anyway if
it has to do with an Autoconf bug, then I fail to see it.
