Well, there's bash, a "configure" script with similar interface (and
config.err), .h dependencies created in a .depend file (instead of a
.deps dir), files with strings replaced like @PREFIX@, the need for a
gcc toolchain, etc.
It is certainly simpler but it has an overall similar structure.
P.S. For me a good test for autotool issues is building out-of-source.
I usually do:
$ mkdir build-os-arch && cd build-os-arch && ../bootstrap (or whatever)
If the project does not build well out of source, it is already a good
sign the coder does not really know autotools. Another bad sign is if
the project does not build properly with make -j2 or similar.
