I'm running into a problem when running autogen.sh:

address@hidden:nmh$ ./autogen.sh 

+ autoreconf -v -i

autoreconf: Entering directory `.'

autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext

autoreconf: running: aclocal -I m4

autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing

autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Libtool

autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf

autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoheader

autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force

configure.ac:11: option `serial-tests' not recognized

autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

Wow, 1.3?  Whew.

We got rid of a LOT of the configuration options along the way; that was
basically a result of either including support for something, or getting
rid of code no one used.  For my testing, here's my configure line:

% ./configure --with-cyrus-sasl --with-tls

Other than the prefix setting, those are the only options you should
normally need (I'd advise leaving those turned on unless there's a reason
you can't get it to compile with those options).

You can also use build_nmh, which I know David has put a lot of work
into (and I see he mentioned already).
