Memory leak and CVS build

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this problem.  I recently
started using libwww in the form of HTXML.  THe library seems to work
wonderfully for what I was looking for.  The only problem I have found
however is that there seems to be a substantial memory leak in the code.  I
am seeing something like 1K for every HTRequest that gets sent.  The version
I am using is 5.2.8 built from source.  Reading the list archives it sounds
like some fixes have been made to clean up the leak and have been put into
CVS.  I am however having trouble building from cvs as I get this error when
I get to the configure stage:

amlau:~/libwww$ ./configure
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
./configure: line 710: syntax error near unexpected token
./configure: line 710: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE($PACKAGE, $VERSION) '

I wonder if I am just doing something wrong.  Any help would be appreciated.
