As a quick addendum, I've noticed that when I try to make the automake scripts, it says it cannot find the suffix lists. Any idea where those suffix files should be coming from? I'm using the version of Automake that was on the Download page. (i've noticed a similar problem with buildign the CVS code as well )

Ok, that makes sense; I knew I downloaded that Automake tarball for some reason. 'course it doesn't look like it 'took' on the Alpha I'm working on for some reason.

I tried to follow your advice, but I cannot find a script anywhere in the CVS tarball I downloaded (I downloaded the latest from the webpage). Is there another site I should look for it somewhere?

The second system though is another Alpha, running Tru64 Unix 5.1a and it seems to be hangign up a bit. I can have a script of the ./configure ; make ; make install available later if anyone wants it, but the main thing I am noticing in the make is the following warning:

WARNING: `autoheader' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
         you modified `acconfig.h' or `'.  You might want
         to install the `Autoconf' and `GNU m4' packages.  Grab them
         from any GNU archive site.

That looks like configure is attempting to rerun the automake process,
which can cause terrible problems if you have some version of automake
and/or autoconf installed on the system that is older than what it
expects.  I suggest you start over with a fresh environment and run the script prior to the configure to keep that from happening
and see if that works any better.
