autoconf/automake on multiple platforms/versions

I've got an issue with using autoconf and automake on two different platforms/versions.

First system (development IDE):
Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.64
automake (GNU automake) 1.11

Second system 2 (target):
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy)
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.61
automake (GNU automake) 1.10.1

I got everything working and compiling on the first system (after upgrading the tools with running aclocal, autoconf, autoreconf, automake --add-missing and such). Here it works now correctly and as it should. However, it is broken on the second system. Running "./configure" stops with "configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash ./config.sub"; and indeed, that file is a symlink to a non-existent location on system 2 (/usr/share/automake-1.11/config.sub).

Currently I'm wondering how to get this problem resolved.
1) I've got no idea how autoconf/automake exactly work and can't get a clear picture from the extensive documentation. It doesn't seem as easy as it looks.
2) I've got a broken configuration, and don't know how to fix it.

My quest so far has not delivered anything useful.

Source code is under

I'm mostly looking for a solution (but understanding it, would be better). Can anyone help me?

Kind regards,
