Actually, I found out after much trial and error that the solution is to add  port:autoconf and port:automake not only to depends_build, but also to depends_lib. Which of course is weird, as they are not needed after the configure phase. And I needed a build dependency on pkgconfig, because that is used in configure to check the versions of some dependencies.

And with that it works, even with set autoconf.cmd after the dependencies.
