Question Wanted help in installing ngspice on Ubuntu 9.04


Hello.
I need help regarding the installation of ngspice on Ubuntu 9.04.

While searching for installation instructions on the internet I found many different options.

I chose the one which said that ngspice can easily be installed using the tarball named ng-spice-rework-21.tar.gz which I downloaded from sourceforge.net.

I extracted the files from tarball and found an INSTALL file which gave me the following order of cammands to use to install ngspice


./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudu make install


when I first wrote ./autogen.sh it gave me error that read 'install libtool first'

I downloaded an installed libtool successfully

When I again used ./autogen.sh command it ran and gave an error as 'automake failed'
following is the excerpt from the actual error reported in terminal window

Code:
Running libtoolize
libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in `.'.
libtoolize: copying file `./ltmain.sh'
libtoolize: You should add the contents of the following files to `aclocal.m4':
libtoolize:   `/usr/local/share/aclocal/libtool.m4'
libtoolize:   `/usr/local/share/aclocal/ltoptions.m4'
libtoolize:   `/usr/local/share/aclocal/ltversion.m4'
libtoolize:   `/usr/local/share/aclocal/ltsugar.m4'
libtoolize:   `/usr/local/share/aclocal/lt~obsolete.m4'
libtoolize: Consider adding `AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' to configure.in and
libtoolize: rerunning libtoolize, to keep the correct libtool macros in-tree.
libtoolize: Consider adding `-I m4' to ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in Makefile.am.
