Compiling libwww on Solaris 2.7

Could someone help me solve the following problem ?

I cannot compile libwww because the Makefiles generated by automake are
wrong.
I use the recommended versions of  automake (1.4),  autoconf (2.13) and
libtool (1.3.2).

On many Makefiles, I get a wrong line, like in the following:

gmake[4]: Entering directory
`/remote/jupiter1/ferran/w3c/libwww/modules/expat/xmltok'
Makefile:291: *** missing separator.  Stop.

The wrong line is always:

-include $(DEP_FILES)

This line is in the following context:

DEPS_MAGIC := $(shell mkdir .deps > /dev/null 2>&1 || :)
-include $(DEP_FILES)
mostlyclean-depend:
clean-depend:
distclean-depend:
        -rm -rf .deps

gmake distclean; aclocal; ...   does not solve the problem.

The only message and warnings I get from autoheader are:

configure.in:44: AC_TRY_COMPILE was called before AC_ISC_POSIX
configure.in:188: warning: AC_TRY_RUN called without default to allow
cross compiling

Thank you for your help.
