This is all, of course, with sources from git.

If configure contains the line continuation ('\') in AC_CONFIG_FILES, then we end up with this lovely construct in configure:
    "config/Makefile") CONFIG_FILES="$CONFIG_FILES config/Makefile" ;;
    "doc/Makefile") CONFIG_FILES="$CONFIG_FILES doc/Makefile" ;;
(I tested with configure.ac containing both styles of line-endings and both with the same result).

If we attempt to make doc, we end up with
make[2]: Entering directory `/gnumake/make/doc'
Updating ./version.texi
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `fdl.texi', needed by `make.info'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/gnumake/make/doc'

Which seems to be very similar to this old bug report:

What are the bugs, and how do they manifest themselves?
