This happens because `missing' is a bit dumb.  It prints this message
even if automake exists but exits with an error.

Cleaning up missing has been on my to-do list for a long, long time.
I'm apparently reluctant to look at it :-(

Anyway, could you submit a PR?  That is the best way right now to make
sure that a bug doesn't get dropped.
