Can't build Amaya 11.3.1 on Ubuntu 10.10

Try as I may, I can't build Amaya 11.3.1 on Ubuntu 10.10.

Here is what I am trying to do:

tar xvfz amaya-sources-11.3.1.tgz
cd Amaya11.3.1
cd Amaya
mkdir WX
cd WX
../configure
make all

(as instructed in http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/Autoconf.html#L438)

That quickly gets me lots of messages like this:

./.libs/libraptor.a:84: warning: null character(s) ignored
./.libs/libraptor.a:84: error: stray '\2' in program

Ok, let's back off. I type

make

(as instructed at the end of ./configure)

That goes on for a while and fails with an error in
Amaya11.3.1/wxWidgets/src/gtk/gsockgtk.cpp

I apply the fix of http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/10883

Then the build stops with

make -C libwww
make[1]: entrant dans le répertoire « /tmp/Amaya11.3.1/Amaya/WX/libwww »
make[1]: *** Pas de cibles spécifiées et aucun makefile n'a été trouvé. Arrêt.
make[1]: quittant le répertoire « /tmp/Amaya11.3.1/Amaya/WX/libwww »
make: *** [libwww] Erreur 2

At this point, I am stuck. I tried

* Running ./configure in the libwww directory => yielded bizarre
messages about a missing autoconf-1.8
* Running ./configure with --enable-system-libwww => made no difference

Any clues? This should not be so hard.

I care because I want to try to replace freetype with the latest
version that presumably gives subpixel anti-aliasing. (I use Amaya
every day and am tired of looking at fuzzy fonts.)

Thanks for any help!
