I would suggest checking config.log to make sure that config.status saw
the Makefile which you added to the AC_OUTPUT() macro. Also double check
that configure was regenerated from configure.in properly (check dates,
use diff, etc).

You might also want to check the online version of the Autotools book
for pointers:

Getting things done with GNU autotools is tedious, isn't it? I've
largely given up on it for serious work, although configure can be
useful in conjunction with other tools. Sorry you are also having bad
experiences with it!

Moving to another build tool still means having to learn another
meta-language and set of symbols to make the build happen, though, and
folk seem to get scared of new things.
