For some other project, I have written the following note, which may apply to 
your problem:

** Autoconf 2.63 or later
** Automake 1.10.2 or later
Note that if you have to install automake by hand (as opposed by "with
your distro's system), you have to tell its aclocal that it should
also look at the files from the system's aclocal.  If
/usr/local/bin/aclocal is the one you just installed, and
/usr/bin/aclocal is the system's one, them run something like this:

  dirlist=$(/usr/local/bin/aclocal --print-ac-dir)/dirlist
  sudo mkdir -p $(dirname $dirlist)
  sudo /usr/bin/aclocal --print-ac-dir >>$dirlist

package: autoconf automake



If at bootstrap you have something like:

  configure:12176: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_LANGINFO_CODESET
   If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
   See the Autoconf documentation.
  configure:12246: error: possibly undefined macro: gl_GLIBC21

it probably means your Automake installation is incomplete.  See the
Automake item in the bootstrap section above.
