Try starting with ./autogen.sh and see how it goes.

Thanks, that works.

I think this step should be added at least to README-alpha

Definitely. README-alpha is not a very obvious name either if you're building from CVS.

I attach a patch to simplify the automake rebuilding logic. It addresses two points:

1. Use autoreconf instead of calling all the autotools.

2. In order to make this work, delete the workaround for an old automake bug in Makefile.am, and just use AC_LOCAL_AMFLAGS. This workaround is unnecessary with at least automake 1.7. It no longer works with automake 1.4. I don't know whether it works with 1.6, which is no longer packaged in my GNU/Linux distribution.
