This looks like a packaging bug to me, or time stamps got messed up
invariably on the way.  Where exactly did you get this Automake from?  
Also, the rule that is invoked is wrong: it should try to use the
aclocal in the current (build tree) directory (which doesn't exist at
that time, but would exist if time stamps had not gotten messed up).

You said you solved the issue, care to explain how (for the benefit of
other users experiencing the same)?
