We get the following error when compiling the HEAD version of Lustre:

[root at northpole lustre]# sh ./autogen.sh 
Checking for a complete tree...
checking for automake-1.9 1.7.8... found 1.9.6
checking for autoconf 2.57... found 2.59

autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal-1.9: autom4te failed with exit status: 1

We run CentOS 5. All kerberos libraries and development RPMs are
installed and have been updated to the latest. Autoconf version is 2.59.
Automake version is 1.9.6. Not sure why we get this error message. Any
help will be greatly appreciated.
