Probably because you didn't properly populate your AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR
directory.  I'm guessing you aren't using automake (since automake will
automatically place a copy of install-sh into your CONFIG_AUX_DIR)?  If
so, the solution is to manually place a version of install-sh alongside
your copies of config.guess and config.sub, all in the directory you
passed to AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR (or, if you aren't using AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR,
into your top-level directory, although I do recommend using
AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR).  The version of install-sh shipped with autoconf
2.68 is adequate for the purpose.
