Problem Compiling Software

Hi, I was trying install this autoconf 2.58.
Alone the way ./configure seem fine without complain but not till I do the make command, it some how complain about the lack of autoconf version 2.57 is required to complete the task. A fast check of the rpm and I realize that I do have the 2.57 version install on my system. So may I ask, what is the problem of this? What can I do?

Error messaga:

cd . && /bin/sh /home/ivan/soft/autoconf-2.58/config/missing --run autoconf error: Autoconf version 2.57b or higher is required
aclocal.m4:207: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE is expanded from... the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [configure] Error 1
[root@localhost autoconf-2.58]#

Re: Problem Compiling Software

It says you need 2.57b or higher. Are you sure this is the version you have?

If you're not using apt-get / yum already, I suggest you start now. There is no easier way to upgrade rpms on the system to the latest version.
