    Why? Which problem are you addressing?

    see above :)

    As far as I can tell, this patch basically does not achieve
    anything substantially different from what we have right now,
    while at the same time slowing down the Makefile generation
    process and making look more complex.  The
    decision which kind of include-directive to use is already
    made at configure-time and then passed to, so in
    that regard there is nothing new.  Converting Makefiles after
    generating them with the slow AC_OUTPUT does not make it fly

    In the long-term, use of include-directives might be
    eliminated.  In the short-term, we could supply some kind of
    auto-detection for BSD/OS users which is performed in the
    top Makefile and which causes a conversion process to be
    started, if the make in use differs from the current Makefile
