Which versions exactly?  I assume autoconf 2.68 and automake 1.11.1,
but it would help you were explicit about this.

- What is the content of you and of your files?
- What is the list of files in your source tree (or a relevant excerpt
- What is the *whole* output you obtained from "make distcheck"?

Without such information, it's very hard if not impossible to help you.
Please post the required information here, and we'll probably be able
to be more helpful.
