[wdiff-bugs] Problems making wdiff after updating to 0.5g

I've run into what appears to be an automake problem and I'm not
exactly sure how to fix it as I'm not too familiar with the whole
automake system.  I think the problem is that when I updated to
Francois' 0.5g code and updated the FSF address in some of the files,
automake's state got out of sync.  So I think I need to sync it
somehow but I have no idea how (or if that's even the correct thing to

The problem is that make does not work the first time around (this is
after doing a ./configure without any apparent errors):

$ make
cd . && aclocal -I m4
m4/realloc.m4:13: warning: underquoted definition of jm_FUNC_REALLOC
m4/realloc.m4:13:   run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
m4/realloc.m4:13:   or see
m4/gettext.m4:89: warning: macro `AM_LC_MESSAGES' not found in library
cd . && automake --gnits --include-deps Makefile
cd . && autoconf
configure:7695: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_LC_MESSAGES
     If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
     See the Autoconf documentation.
make: *** [configure] Error 1

If I run make again, it will build part of the files and then complain
that it can't find ./depcomp so I should run "automake --add-missing".
If I then run "automake --add-missing" and run make again, it
completes the build, but the "info" and "man" directories that should
appear in my --prefix directory (passed to ./configure) are not there,
although "bin" and "share" are created and seem to contain the
appropriate files.

I have checked in the code that does this to CVS (see
http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=wdiff for details).  If you have a
chance and think you might know what the problem is, please check it

I have attached the diff between 0.5g and 0.5.4-pre1, which shows you
which files have changed that might have caused automake/aclocal to
start complaining.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
