Yep, these auto tools are not very consistent.  While they introduced
major backwards compatibility headaches to anyone using them, they
simply don't manage it to pass the names they have been called with
down into the generated scripts, so e.g.  if you ran automake13, it
will later try to call either automake or automake-1.3 (which both
don't exist on my systems).

That's why I cannot see that on my FreeBSD machines.  The port
maintainers of the auto tools have chosen to never install any of
these tools by their generic names anymore.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
