Just set up a new machine with ~amd64. For some reason i can't build some packages with aclocal errors like this:

ERROR:

    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.

configure.in:25: the top level

aclocal-1.13: error: echo failed with exit status: 1


packages not building so far: mysql, syslog-ng, glib, libgcrypt. all have the same error over aclocal. can anyone help?

Seems a problem with automake-1.13 ... maybe masking that can help...

So what exactly is the fix? Mask automake-1.13.1 and remove it?

Code:

***** aclocal

aclocal-1.13: warning: autoconf input should be named 'configure.ac', not 'configure.in'
configure.in:25: error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.
    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.

aclocal-1.13: error: echo failed with exit status: 1


I think that means that the syntax for autotools has changed (AM_CONFIG_HEADER seemingly was dropped in favour of AC_CONFIG_HEADER). I think the best way to fix this (once and for all) is to file a bug upstream - they need to fix their build system to build with newer autotools...
