I tried this on my Mac, and it looks like 'compile' in the root of the
branch is a symlink to /usr/share/automake-1.9/compile (which doesn't
exist; there is /usr/share/automake-1.6 and /sw/share/automake-1.9).

Oddly enough, this doesn't cause a problem until automake descends into clients:

   autoreconf: running: automake --no-force
   clients/Makefile.am: required file `./compile' not found

I fixed this locally with 'automake --add-missing', but I'm not sure
how to tell autoreconf to pass that option to automake. Maybe we
should just ship a copy of 'compile' in SVN?
