For some reason, the configuration files are broken.  (This happens
when the `automake'-generated Makefile tries to rebuild itself.)

Here's a sequence that will rebuild them all (taken from the
README-CVS file which tells you how to build DDD from the CVS

   $ (cd ddd && aclocal)
   $ autoconf -l ddd
   $ automake --gnu --add-missing --copy --verbose
   $ (cd ddd && autoconf && automake --foreign --add-missing --copy --verbose)
   $ (cd vsllib && autoconf -l ../ddd && automake --foreign --verbose)
   $ (cd themes && autoconf -l ../ddd && automake --foreign --verbose)
   $ (cd readline && autoconf)
   $ (cd termcap && autoconf)

After that, you can simply enter `./configure' and proceed as usual.
