never ending loop on make


Hi,
After doing ./configure when i do make
it starts a never ending loop with the process being repeated over and over again.
I donot get any errors but only warnings:
----
cd . && /bin/sh /home/jods/Documents/Gaim/gaim-0.76/missing --run aclocal-1.6
/home/jods/Documents/Gaim/gaim-0.76/missing: line 46: aclocal-1.6: command not found
WARNING: `aclocal-1.6' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
you modified `acinclude.m4' or `configure.ac'. You might want
to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages. Grab them from
any GNU archive site.
cd . && \
/bin/sh /home/jods/Documents/Gaim/gaim-0.76/missing --run automake-1.6 --gnu Makefile
/home/jods/Documents/Gaim/gaim-0.76/missing: line 46: automake-1.6: command not found

This has happened only while installing gaim.

Any help would be greatly apppreciated.

well as it clearly says:

automake-1.6: command not found
i'd say that was a good place to start...
