Hmm.  I pulled

which I assume is what you mean.  Running
inside the top source directory works fine Autoconf-2.59.  However, do
note that aclocal.m4 contains some macro definitions which are not
supplied by either Automake nor Libtool, and are not part of Autoconf
either, nor of the epsilon package.  So if you ever run aclocal, you
have to make sure to have sources for these macros available.

Isn't this (i.e., aclocal.m4 containing private macros[*] without their sources)
something that should be VERY STRONGLY discouraged. After all, running
"reautoconf" may (does?) invoke aclocal.

[*] I'm not talking about m4 macros installed by some prerequisite package under
/usr/share/aclocal (or rather `aclocal --print-ac-dir`).
