I think I'm having an issue with the version of autoconf that is expected.  Here is the output from "autoreconf -iv":

autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal
autoreconf: tracing
autoreconf: not using Libtool
autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf error: possibly undefined macro: AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS

Can someone confirm that this requires autoconf ver >2.60? I'm on SuSE and I haven't been able to find a suitable update for it.

You should be able to do ./ && ./configure ... && make && make install

Personally, I prefer:

autoreconf -iv && ./configure ... && make && make install
