A quick search of Google and this mailing list's archives couldn't
help me, so hopefully someone on this list can.  I'm new to autotools,
and I'm trying to follow the tutorial at
which seems to be very up-to-date.  It includes a Hello World example
that is also given in the automake manual at

Copying the source code listed on that page into the specified files
and running autoreconf yielded the following results on my system:

% autoreconf --install `automake requires `AM_CONFIG_HEADER', not `AC_CONFIG_HEADER' installing `./install-sh' installing `./mkinstalldirs' installing `./missing' option `-Wall' not recognized option `-Wall' not recognized
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

No was created in any directory.  Any idea what's wrong?
More info about my system is below.
