Thanks for the bug report (and its forward).  Which Automake version was
used to create this package, and which scriptversion does the `missing'
script have?  I cannot see how this could happen with the script provided
with Automake-1.9.6, nor with the one from CVS HEAD.

If you were using older autotools versions, be encouraged to upgrade
them and use `autoreconf --verbose --install --force' on the package,
or some other, appropriate bootstrapping mechanism (autogen.sh or
whatever it uses).
