This is beginning to look like it is an issue with the version of automake installed: 

aixtools@gcc119:[/home/aixtools/cpython/cpython-master]automake --version

Will test on a system where I can install the latest automake.

Assuming an updated version of automake fixes that - but not knowing autotools well enough - is there a simple addition to ensure that automake-1.16 is used?
