Sounds like installing an OS into a subdirectory, tweaking various
config files, device files, mountpoints, etc. within that subdir's
OS installation, and then chrooting into that dir to build.
Is that how sysroot works? If it is similar that, autotools
works fine in such environments (as did Imake).
The Red Hat buildsystem (beehive) as well as other buildsystems
such as mock, mach, etc. use an approach similar to this.
I'm not too sure how this relates to X.Org architecture though.
