you've got "incorrect" versions of the auto* tools (known by smart
people everywhere as "autocrap"). these tools make no effort at back- or
forward compatibility, so if you don't have the correct versions, it
will fail. we do not use these tools anymore, but alas, two of the
libraries that are part of the build do, in a way that we cannot
trivially replace.

i can't even tell you precisely what range of versions will work, but i
can tell you that i have:

	automake 1.10
	libtool 1.5.24
	autoconf 2.61

There are not errors. They are correctly noting that your box does not
appear to be an OS X system. You need not worry about them.
