CVS Build Errors on RedHat 6.0 i386

Hello libwww!

I'm having some troubles building the CVS source on my rh6.0(i386) linux box.

After following the instructions for building the library from the CVS
source exactly several times, I can't seem to get it to even ./configure
correclty.

Reference page: http://www.w3.org/Library/cvs.html - Where the build
instructions are located.

The CVS source seems to download just fine, and generating the include files
and bootstrap commands don't seem too volatile (I do get some error messages,
which I am ignoring as per the instructions on the page [See Adition A at
bottom of message).


on running ./configure I get the following:

checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
./configure: syntax error near unexpected token `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE($PACKAGE,'
./configure: ./configure: line 710: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE($PACKAGE, $VERSION) '


I'm suspecting there is a missing '.in' file but I can't seem to locate it.

Any Ideas, help?

Thanks,
Brockman
