If you look into lines 11998 and following, it looks (among 
other things) for a junit.jar or junit4.jar in /usr/share/java, but not 
for a junit-4.12.jar.

So either rename /usr/share/java/junit-4.12.jar to 
/usr/share/java/junit4.jar, or put 
--with-junit=/usr/share/java/junit-4.12.jar into your autogen.input.
