Interesting. I suspect that AX_CHECK_COMPILE_FLAG isn't getting cc1 invoked, only cpp, because it passes in an effectively empty program. 

Try editing macros/m4_ax_check_compile_flag.m4 so that
	[[const char hw[] = "Hello, World\n";]],
        [[fputs (hw, stdout);]])]))])],

and see if that will get it to fail in configure. You'll need to re-run to pull the modified macro into configure.
