Unfortunately I do not have an autoconf-2.52 to test this with..  I only
have access to 2.13 (and it works fine there).

It should have been...  The problem appears to be that autoconf is
DYING instead of just complaining about the use of LIBOBJS..  The real
problem is that autoconf-2.13 and -2.52 are not completely compatible.
Unfortunately I don't have a good workaround for you.  You could try
running autoconf by hand and seeing if that works?
