I don't think there is a general way to do that.  You can use 'make -n'
if you wish to not execute commands, or override the RANLIB or AR or CC
(or COMPILE) macros.

Serious question: why do you want or need to do this?  Automake
generally allows flexibility where it's necessary for portability
but if you don't have ar, then libmylib.a can't be built; however
AC_PROG_RANLIB will set @RANLIB@ to ':' for you if not present --
not all systems have/need a ranlib.

Hope that helps.
