You probably can't, as much of that "logic" is baked into autoconf.

If it's provided by the package as custom autoconf tweaks, you can
patch the autoconf files, rerun autoconf, and use the results to
mechanically patch the autoconf output, but that isn't going to be
easier or much better.

If nobody commits the patch be sure to file it in gnats.
