autoconf and automake usage problems


I'm trying to install the newest cvs version of ytalk on openbsd 3.8... It says I need to use autoconf, automake, and gettext on the ytalk site (http://www.impul.se/ytalk/cvs.php) to compile the cvs version. So I installed autoconf, automake, and gettext and their dependancies. Now when I use the autoconf command in the ytalk cvs directory, It says: provide and autoconf_version environmental variable, please. What should I do to install this source? Thanks for your help.

You may need to do what is being asked: supply the autoconf_version environmental variable.

If you are using bash you will need to do something like
Quote:
export AUTOCONF_VERSION=XXX.XXX.XXX
or some such.

Cheers--
