'make' failing after OS reinstall

hi all, i recently upgraded from fedora core 1 to core 2, and decided to do a complete upgrade (wipes the system clean and reinstalls from scratch)..

i have installed absolutely everything on the disks, although when compiling from source I am having problems!

my process is to run


in fedora core 1 I rarely had any problems, although now the make command is failing. i am getting this output:

cd .. && make am--refresh
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/niko/arson'
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/niko/arson'
Making all in doc
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/niko/arson/doc'
cd .. && \
/bin/sh /home/niko/arson/admin/missing --run automake --gnu doc/Makefile warning: do not use m4_patsubst: use patsubst or m4_bpatsubst

aclocal.m4:10710: _AM_DIRNAME is expanded from... the top level your implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from an old Automake version. You should recreate aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again.

does anyone have any ideas how I can get my system up and running so I can compile from source?

im still new to this..

thanks in advance

ps, my problems are specific to downloaded source off the net - in the above example it is for the arson CD burner.
