The "autom4te: unknown language: Autoconf-without-aclocal-m4" message
indicates some sort of installation problem with Autoconf.  (Or
perhaps your autom4te.cache is messed up?  Try removing it.)

This reminds me of an Autoconf patch by Alexandre Duret-Lutz that
Akim Demaille didn't like; see
I'm not sure what the status of the "I hate caches" school is, so
I'll CC: this to bug-automake and bug-autoconf.

That's an old version of gettext; I wouldn't be surprised if CVS tar
requires gettext 0.14.1.  Can you please try using that instead?  If
it fixes the problem, we'll update tar/README-alpha accordingly.
