any idea why the 'missing' script would get run? And how to stop it from asking for autoconf?

I haven't been able to figure it out from a cursory look. Libtool bootstrap usually works (and takes about 10 minutes to run), but occasionally when I cd into a fresh build tree and ../configure, running make invokes missing to rerun automake which chokes on missing (which hasn't been built yet obviously). Removing the build tree, rerunning bootstrap and starting again always fixes it though. Weird!

If you get anywhere near figuring it out, please let me know!

Hmm, it turned out that our Kaffe-internal patch to config.guess didn't apply anymore cleanly to the config.guess file in libltdl. That somehow caused configure to attempt to redo the whole automake business for libltdl from scratch, apparently.
