At a guess, I would say that you haven't got libtool installed, or
automake can't find its m4 file for some reason.

What do you get if you type:

 ls `aclocal --print-ac-dir`

it told me that the directory didn't even exist. I linked aclocal-1.10
to aclocal . However libtool was not installed in that directory (I
installed automake 1.10 from source inro my own directory). Copying
the .m4 files didn't work, so I also install libtool from source.

Now I get the problem:

configure: line 7888: syntax error near unexpected token `GTK,'
configure: line 7888: ` PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GTK, gtk+-2.0 >= 2.6.0)'

I understand that this is caused by a missing pkg.m4. Again just
copying the pkg.m4 into my aclocal directory didn't help. Presumably I
have to reinstall what ever package includes pkg.m4 from source?

Is installing a new automake from source really this difficult? The
automake readme doesn't mention having to reinstall stuff.
