     WARNING: 'autom4te' is missing on your system.
              You might have modified some maintainer files that require
              the 'autom4te' program to be rebuilt.
              The 'autom4te' program is part of the GNU Autoconf package:
              It also requires GNU m4 and Perl in order to run:
     test -s tests/testsuite.tmp
     Makefile:12456: recipe for target 'tests/testsuite' failed
     make[2]: *** [tests/testsuite] Error 1
     Is this an error?

It depends:

If you are building from a released tarball, then the answer is "yes".

However, if you are building from (say) a git snapshot, then "no"; it means
that you haven't got autoconf installed (or your system can't find it).
See the file README.Git for details of what exactly you need to build 
from a Git checkout.
