This automake did not work out of the box.  I had to create symlinks from /bin/automake to /bin/automake-1.4, and /bin/aclocal to /bin/aclocal-1.4 before it would configure.

The last automake-1.4 release should install automake-1.4 by default.
That release was automake-1.4-p6, so try for

Note that you need to have automake-1.4 and automake-1.7 installed to
build GNOME, due to compatibility problems between the two versions. You
cannot try to work around this by linking automake-1.7 to automake-1.4
or anything crazy like that. And that is why we don't just call automake
(since 'automake' could be pointing to automake-1.4 or automake-1.7 or
anything in between).
