I came against this problem a bit over a month ago - see the relevant
mailing list messages from the time:
The upshot was that AS and ASFLAGS need to be documented in the automake
manual, and autoconf needs to have a macro to define these flags.
In the meantime, putting
in configure.ac works for me, but is "basically broken". ;-)

So the macro should go in autoconf...
