It won't do that if you supply your own aclocal.m4, even a trivial one. See, for example, the file autogen.sh in the GNU Emacs master source code.

Or perhaps aclocal should be migrated from automake to autoconf? (Perhaps under 
a different name, to simplify the transition?)

Something like that might make sense, if someone had the time to think through all the issues.
