Compat 10 enabled autoreconf by default, but unfortunately these macros
are added to aclocal manually by which autoreconf ignores.

The "correct" thing to do would be to put the macros in the m4 directory
(it always annoys me when upstreams put lots of pointless stuff in See:

For the package you can probably get away with disabling autoreconf and
running manually.

I also notice AM_OPT_FLAGS macro contains some funky per-cpu
optimization flags (configured depending on build cpu) which I would
patch out (the bit from 'if test "\$target_cpu" = "powerpc"; then' to
it's corresponding 'fi').
