Hi guys,

Gordon said that he calls "aclocal" without any flags. I don't know
Ubuntu, so I may be wrong, but it might be worth trying

  aclocal --install


  aclocal -I m4 --install

instead. The help string for the --install option says: "copy
third-party files to the first -I directory". Based on the assumption
that Ubuntu installs the archive's macros into a system location where
aclocal finds them, this should do the trick.

Of course, Peter Johansson's suggestion of calling

 > autoreconf -ivf

is probably going to do that transparently anyway.

I hope this helps,
