If this is the same problem you mentioned last night, then I think
these lines might be the root cause of the "make" error:

$ autoreconf --install
libtoolize: `config.guess' exists: use `--force' to overwrite
libtoolize: `config.sub' exists: use `--force' to overwrite
libtoolize: `ltmain.sh' exists: use `--force' to overwrite
configure.in:10: `automake requires `AM_CONFIG_HEADER', not
drivers/Makefile.am:35: driverexec_PROGRAMS was already defined in
condition SOME_DRIVERS_FALSE, which implies condition SOME_DRIVERS_FALSE

# construct the list of drivers to build
 driverexec_PROGRAMS (User, where = drivers/Makefile.am:35) +=

That last part repeats multiple times, once for each driver I believe.
and then I get hundreds of the following:

Use of uninitialized value in list assignment at /usr/bin/automake line
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/bin/automake line 8449.
: warning: automake does not support driverexec_PROGRAMS being defined

What happens if you type "automake --version"?

You can probably get rid of automake15, automake14 and autoconf213. It
might be that automake-1.6 is not new enough.

Peter, any ideas?
