Unfortunately,

I had a very similar problem, but received no advice.  I've upgraded
my workstation to Suse 6.1, but have not yet attempt to recompile
libwww.  I would recommend that you just get the tarball at this
point.  There seem to be unaddressed problems with bootstrapping the
code from the CVS repository.

   I fetched and installed
	   autoconf-2.13
	   automake-1.4
	   libtool-1.3.2
   which I think are the latest available versions.

   However I seem to have an incompatibility problem between this version
   libtool and the version of either autoconf or automake, because the
   configure terminates with the message:
   ...
   checking for BSD-compatible nm... /home/sb/apps/bin/nm -B
   checking whether ln -s works... yes
   updating cache ./config.cache
   ltconfig: unrecognized option `--cache-file=./config.cache'
   Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
   configure: error: libtool configure failed

   Has anyone seen this and any tips as to what versions of the utilities 
   I should pick on a SuSE linux 5.3 system?

   Thanx!
