installing E, fnlib, and automake probs

Hello everyone, got a question..

I'm trying to install Enlightenment 0.16.5 (from src). The ./config calls for fnlib, which I got from the sourceforge link on Good, great, grand... I go to install it (another source package) and ./config works fine... But when I do 'make' the following happens:

# make
cd . && automake --gnu --include-deps Makefile your implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from an old Automake version. You should recreate aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again.
make: *** [] Error 1

Now the method I'm using to install tar.gz's is simply to open the tar in Konqueror, copy the directory to an outside directory (/installs/fnlib) and then enter that and do the ./config and make there. Would that contribute to the problem?

It appears to be that I don't have automake installed, buuut:

# rpm -qf /usr/bin/autoconf
# rpm -qf /usr/bin/automake
# rpm -qf /usr/bin/aclocal

So thats my situation. Do I simply need to do what it asks and 'recreate aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again'? If so, I have no idea how to do this... Any ideas? (besides simply finding a binary of fnlib? Id like this to be fixed, not just worked around =)

Thanks all!
