Sounds like an ancient version of autoconf/automake is used to generate the
BIRD releases, possibly Debian old-stable?

While BIRD does not ship any systemd unit file, it does not seem to ship an
initscript either. But given you are a user of CentOS 7, I wonder why you
are not using the RPM package from EPEL 7 for aarch64 (which includes these
systemd unit files). If the BIRD version there is too old, it would make
IMHO sense to file a feature request for a BIRD version bump there.
