All of the packages intalled by your distro that support aclocal (gettext, 
gtk, libtool etc) will have put their macros in /usr/share/aclocal, but you 
have installed automake to /usr/local so it is looking in 

If you don't mind upsetting your package manager, the following will work (as 

        $ cp -f /usr/local/share/aclocal/* /usr/share/aclocal
        $ rmdir /usr/local/share/aclocal
        $ ln -s /usr/share/aclocal /usr/local/share/aclocal

More properly, use your package manager to uninstall the distributed automake 
package, and reinstall your version, but this time configured with 
--prefix=/usr (preferably after making a package from it).
