are you trying to compile/make the application, or install via rpm?
if it's rpm, i have no idea, as i don't use RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE, or any other distribution that uses rpms.
if you're trying to install from source, here's what to do:
1) delete every 'Makefile.in' you can find...(NOT 'configure.in')
2) delete aclocal.m4 in the source directory
3) delete 'configure'
4) run 'automake'
5) run 'aclocal'
6) run 'autoconf'
7) run ./configure && make && make install
