That sounds a little harsh.  I think that the LZMA complaint from
automake may be because libtool requests a lzma package and it requires
the very latest automake to do so.

Where does Libtool 2.2 require lzma?  That would be a serious bug,
requiring such a recent Automake.

I was not able to find where libtool 'requests' a lzma package but I do see that all of the Makefile.in files in the distribution include a target for it (dist-lzma).

Libtool was bootstrapped using Automake-1.10.1, but there is no reason that users of Libtool-2.2 need to use it too. I was careful to build the lzma release files by hand to compensate for not offering xdeltas or diffs -- and didn't introduce a dependency on the lzma rules to libtool-2.2 so that compatibility with older
Automakes wasn't compromised.

The reported error message seems quite strange, particularly since LZMA is in caps.

I agree with Peter's diagnosis... Nelson's Automake installation seews broken somehow: that's a perl failure in the Automake code AFAICT. The reported errors occur when am-subdir.at run Nelson's automake (which is at least version 1.10, judging by the
log messages.
