Hmmm, I'm still curious about why it is looking for these. Where are you
running make from? There are a couple of makefiles lying around in obj/
bindings/ and apps/X11/micros that refer to and we need to
clear these up.

With the released 1.5.6 you don't need automake, you just run configure
(it's only CVS where you need automake).

curious. It might be because it is defined in the makefile that is
generated by configure which you don't appear to be using.
Make sure you run make from the same directory as you run configure.

If that doesn't work could you send the the makefile that has the
problem directly to me (not to list).

Yes :)
