When I try bootstrapping squid3 at the moment, I get the following output:
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
automake :
libtool :
helpers/basic_auth/ required directory
helpers/basic_auth/POP3 does not exist required file `helpers/basic_auth/POP3/' not
automake failed
Autotool bootstrapping failed. You will need to investigate and correct
before you can develop on this source tree

It looks like removing the references to POP3 from and fixes the problem. (I did remove all other versions of
automake from my system before running this, which could have been my
problem before).

Am I missing the POP3 directory from my tree, or does a patch need to be
committed removing the references to the POP3 directory from these 2
