So you're running a newer version of automake then we've dealt with before.
That being said ...

>automake-1.12: warnings are treated as errors

Now THIS, I don't understand.  This shouldn't be the default, as I read it.
Do you have a WARNINGS environment variable?

Ah, I see.  We have -Werror in AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE.  So I'm thinking we should
take that out, maybe?

>/usr/local/share/automake-1.12/am/library.am: warning: 'mts/libmts.a': linking 
>libraries using a non-POSIX
>/usr/local/share/automake-1.12/am/library.am: archiver requires 'AM_PROG_AR' 
>in 'configure.ac'

This should be fine to ignore; as I read the documentation it's only really
necessary on systems with "unusual" archivers (like Windows).

>Makefile.am:591: warning: user target 'cscope' defined here ...
>/usr/local/share/automake-1.12/am/tags.am: ... overrides Automake target 
>'cscope' defined here

Also okay, since the user-defined targets override Automake-provided ones.

So this stuff is new for Automake 1.12.  We have two choices: remove the
-Werror, or move us forward and require Automake 1.12.  Thoughts?  I'm
leaning to removing -Werror.
