Maybe update automake?
 
Hello,

I wanted to compile the git snapshot of nmh. Running ./autogen.sh results in:

Code:

+ autoreconf -v -i
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal -I m4
/usr/share/aclocal/imlib.m4:9: warning: underquoted definition of AM_PATH_IMLIB
/usr/share/aclocal/imlib.m4:9:  run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
/usr/share/aclocal/imlib.m4:9:  or see http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/automake.html#Extending-aclocal
autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Libtool
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoheader
autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
configure.ac:11: option `serial-tests' not recognized
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

Removing serial-tests from configure.ac gets me this:

Code:

+ autoreconf -v -i
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal -I m4
/usr/share/aclocal/imlib.m4:9: warning: underquoted definition of AM_PATH_IMLIB
/usr/share/aclocal/imlib.m4:9:  run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
/usr/share/aclocal/imlib.m4:9:  or see http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/automake.html#Extending-aclocal
autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Libtool
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoheader
autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
configure.ac:11: require Automake 1.12, but have 1.11.5
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

This works on Ubuntu 13.10 (tested in a virtual machine).

I grabbed the automake SlackBuild and automake 1.14, upgraded the package and then it worked. So maybe automake can be updated?

Regards
