As one who has griped to various software projects in the past about breaking compatibility with old versions of Perl, I sympathize, but I thought the Autoconf Way is to build configure scripts on a modern system, then ship them to the assorted systems they need to run on.  These configure scripts use only portable shell constructs, not even needing full POSIX compatibility.

Surely Solaris 10 (shipped in 2005) is relegated to the role of porting target, getting nothing but a “dist” tarball?  Why do primary development on that old system?
