Ah, here we are. Found my notes.
(Please note that I am Debian based, the package names for your distro may
be different).

Working from a clean copy of the branch and getting bootstrap errors.
I managed to get it going by installing:


to get the bootstrap running properly and displaying all action messages
and then


  for a cryptic undefined macro error with no helpful references to say
what was missing. This problem only appears to occur in the latest
versions of libtool which displays as error: possibly undefined macro: AC_LTDL_DLLIB
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

I am currently using:
    automake 1.10
    autoconf 2.61
    libtool 1.4.3

The bootstrap says it looks for these:

WARNING: Cannot find automake version 1.9 1.7 1.6 1.5
Trying automake (GNU automake) 1.10
WARNING: Cannot find autoconf version 2.59 2.57 2.53 2.52
Trying autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.61
