I am new to this stuff, so....

I've installed a cut of the CVS tree on my system, and I wish to compile 
the library. (Solaris 2.8, Compiler SC5.0)

I've just run autoconf to generate the configure file and have invoked
configure which detects an error:

configure: syntax error at line 710: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE' unexpected

According to the W3C web site, this has been tried out on Solaris.

I've not used autoconf before, but from the help it seems that it should not
need any parameters.

Before I go off an figure out what a configure.,in should look like, I was wondering if ther 
was something I had missed.

Thanks,

Sean
