Most are close, but not that many are officially branded (or even tested).

All that I've encountered though I have not tried running it on
something like SysVr2 or even SysVr3.  Of course autoconf is extensible
if necessary, and will no doubt be fixed as incompatabilities appear

The latest version of autoconf generated configure scripts are known to
fail on some ancient versions of sh, but I've found that all such
systems with broken /bin/sh's also have newer shells, such as ksh,
installed by default, so it's trivial for the user to work around such
