Aha.  That makes sense.  As far as GNU make is concerned, the 'make'
invocation inside the test script is a sub-make.

Maybe '$srcdir/defs' should 

      unsetenv MAKEFLAGS

Yep.  Maybe m4/make.m4 should use

      MAKEFLAGS= $am_make -s -f confmf

instead.  I know, it's not worth the bother.  But, it seems somewhat
cleaner.  We are just ensuring a non-"sub-make" invocation.
