Hello Russell,

In a generated by automake 1.9.6, it defines
top_builddir ok, but builddir is used but not defined in there.

This causes problems, because the automake manual says:

— Variable: builddir
     Rigorously equal to ‘.’. Added for symmetry only.

Automake 1.9.6 is very old.  Presumably you're using an ancient version
of Autoconf too, please state which.  Normally I'd say upgrade and
retry, but I might look at this if you post a small reproducer.

I had a closer look at my system and found the debian alternatives
system was pointing at an old version. I set it right now thanks.
