To quote the automake manual:


Building the package involves running ‘./configure’. If you need to supply additional flags to configure, define them 
in the AM_DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS variable in your top-level Makefile.am. The user can still extend or override the 
flags provided there by defining the DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS variable, on the command line when invoking make.

so we probably should have the configure-script code that chooses which GUI toolkits to use (if any) set 
AM_DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS.  I'll look at doing that.
