It's not distro specific:

"Noteworthy changes in autoconf version 2.64

The internal macro AH_CHECK_HEADERS has been removed; while this is an
internal change that should not mean anything to properly-written
autotools, this actually breaks packages using the KDE 3.x autotools-based
build system, in particular the KDE_CHECK_HEADERS macro. To work with
autoconf 2.64, KDE3-based software should replace the calls to the
KDE-specific macro with equivalent calls to the proper, standard
AC_CHECK_HEADERS macro, after properly setting up the language to C++ if

In other words, we can spend a lot of time rewriting the Automake system,
OR we can port to a newer and better build system in probably the same
amount of time it would take to fix Automake.
