Hi Jean,

It seems that this error message held the critical clue. I had re-created your
exact situation by following your instructions on my system. By beginning with
aclocal I was able to proceed to a successful installation.

The exact steps I took were:

  automake --add-missing
  ./configure --prefix=...
  make install

Try that and see if it works for you, too.
