Unhappy autoconf 2.54 need HELP !!


OK ... I'm trying to install Clanlib 0.7.2 and it complains that I need autoconf 2.54 or greater (current 2.53). No probs I thought, d/loaded the autoconf-2.54.tar.gz file and run ./configure and get the following:

[root@localhost autoconf-2.54]# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for expr... /usr/bin/expr
checking for gm4... no
checking for gnum4... no
checking for m4... /usr/bin/m4
checking whether m4 supports frozen files... yes
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for emacs... emacs
checking for emacs... (cached) emacs
checking where .elc files should go... ${datadir}/emacs/site-lisp

config.status: creating lib/autoconf/Makefile
config.status: creating lib/autotest/Makefile
config.status: creating bin/Makefile
config.status: executing tests/atconfig commands

So far so good I think. Then I run make and get the following:

[root@localhost autoconf-2.54]# make
cd . && /bin/sh /home/baldrick/tmp/autoconf-2.54/config/missing --run aclocal-1.6c -I config
/home/baldrick/tmp/autoconf-2.54/config/missing: line 46: aclocal-1.6c: command not found

cd . && \

Question: What have I done?
