AX_BOOST_BASE patch for latest autoconf archive git
AX_BOOST_BASE was broken on PPC64 on 2017-08-15:
(This breaks it because while uname -m returned "ppc", host_cpu uses "powerpc")
I have sent the patch upstream, but for now, I suggest:
1) Remove the ppc64 keywords from affected versions.
2) Bump both versions (since only one is currently stable on ppc64) with the fix (maybe leave the bumps unkeyworded on non-ppc64 arches since they don't need it?).
Note that I have not evaluated whether this may affect non-64-bit PPC as well.

Lone fix for other extra-comma bug
For reference, this patch fixes another bug in 2017.09.28: the extra comma caused all arches other than amd64, sparc64, and aarch64, to fail because their lib dirs were never even checked. (It was fixed upstream in 2017-11-27.)

I cannot find it in upstream mailing list/bug tracker. Where exactly did you send it to?
The listed author for AX_BOOST_BASE (Thomas Porschberg) directly.
