I agree that those are all problems that autoconf/libtool/etc. claim to solve. My experience (which is extensive) is that they don't reliably work, and I spend a *LOT* more time figuring out the problem and fixing it than I did with packages that simply ask me to set a few variables in the beginning of the Makefile.
I'd guess that if all you ever work with is Linux, BSD, and possibly Solaris, these tools do work, mostly. OTOH, those are the really easy ones.
