I tried with Solaris 2.6 and I have the same problem.
Am I the only one who tries to compile and install libwww on Solaris ?
I'd appreciate any hint to let me go through this blocking problem.

Here is my problem again:

I cannot compile libwww because the Makefiles generated by automake are
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 
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) 
        -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.
