Does anyone have any ideas as to why autogen doesn't recognize a fink-
installed automake?

Type automake --version and see what version comes up. Also type which
automake, to see from which path automake is being called.

`automake --version' prints the expected version number (e.g. 1.9 if I
installed automake1.9 with fink).  `which automake' confirms that
/sw/bin/automake is being called.

I also tried 1.5 and 1.9, but autogen didn't seem to recognize any of
them. (I did start new terminal sessions to make sure that everything
was set up right.)

Did you install these automake manually or through fink? I installed
automake 1.9.6 manually in prefix=/sw/ and it works fine for me.

I installed them with fink.

I have intltool installed, and the file /sw/share/aclocal/intltool.m4
exists; I set ACLOCAL_PATH to "/sw/share/aclocal", but I still got this
error.  Will this problem probably be fixed when I fix the other one?

this is how the ACLOCAL_FLAGS variable should be set :

CLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /sw/share/aclocal/ -I /sw//gtk2/share/aclocal/ -I
/sw/gtk2/share/aclocal/" of course replace the paths above with you own
appropriate ones.

OK—when I changed ACLOCAL_FLAGS to "-I /sw/share/aclocal", the m4 macros
were found all right.  Automake still isn't recognized, though.

Thanks for the help!
