I am trying to install pango-1.4.0, and it gives me an error saying I don't have the correct version of autoconf. I go download autoconf, do ./configure , make, make install without a hitch, but pango still gives me the error:
WARNING: `automake-1.7' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
you modified `Makefile.am', `acinclude.m4' or `configure.in'.
You might want to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages.
Grab them from any GNU archive site.
I go to do autoconf --version as my user and get:
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59

But when I do autoconf --version as root, I get:
Autoconf version 2.13
What's going on? Why doesn't the pango installer recognise autoconf 2.59 as root?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
