Unlike some people around on this list, these tools' upstreams
know how
to use the autotools (I am active contributor to all of them):
Use pregenerated files, do not run the autotools while building.


And things like this make the autotools completely unattractive as
a developer (to me at least).

Well, not all tools suite all needs. If you believe other tools better suite your needs, use them, if you feel like it.

But if you use a tool (such as the autotools) you should learn to use them and to use them correctly.
