I had similar problems when I installed automake 1.10  --- It seems
that when you install it under /usr/local, it's not aware of packages
under /usr 

I fixed this problem as follows:

 echo /usr/share/aclocal >> /usr/local/share/aclocal/dirlist

     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.
