Question giFT installation problem


first of, yes I have read and reread the installation guide. Ok now to the problem. I just updated all teh auto-x things, and tried to do ./autogen.sh and I get this error: configure.ac: 75: macro 'AM_DISABLE_STATIC' not found in library. Any ideas?

The best I am coming up with is the :
If you get fatal errors during make, read the instructions about configuring again, and check your system setup before complaining to us.
from the install doc.
The errors are all in files from the giFT source as far as I can tell.
Perhaps you need to confirm good versions as mentioned here:
First things first, make sure you have recent versions of autoconf (2.5x), automake (1.4) and libtool (1.4.x). You will get fatal errors if you're using other versions. Remember to run ./autogen.sh again after upgrading one or more of those programs.
from the install doc.
Maybe uninstall and reinstall as you did with libtool?
I am no compile wizard. I just search google, message boards and follow leads.
