Problem building CVS Guile with automake 1.6.1

User-agent: Gnus/5.090004 (Oort Gnus v0.04) Emacs/21.1.80 (sparc-sun-solaris2.7)

Guile's `' script fails with automake 1.6.1.  Here is
the relevant part:

 |  # copy all installed aclocal files into $temp
 |  cp `aclocal --print-ac-dir`/*.m4 $temp
 |  # remove the .m4 files installed by Guile from $temp, so they don't
 |  # cause conflicts
 |  rm -f ${temp}/guile.m4 ${temp}/qthreads.m4
 |  aclocal --acdir=$temp -I .

As far as I understand it, this fails with automake 1.6.1 because the
"aclocal" library location is versioned with the automake API version.
On my system, the location is 



 aclocal --print-ac-dir 
  ==> /localapp/imosoft/sparcv9-sun-solaris2.7/share/aclocal

which happens to point to an old (1.4) installation of the aclocal

When aclocal is invoked with --acdir set to a copy of this library, 
automake fails with these messages: your implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from an old Automake version.  You should recreate aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again.

Clearly something needs to be fixed.  Is it aclocal (to return the
versioned "aclocal" directory) or Guile?
