Thomas mentioned a screwed up configure script.

This could have been because I had automake-1.4 as the alternative for
automake.  I've updated CVS with aclocal-1.7, automake-1.7 and
autoconf 2.59

aclocal-1.8 spat out loads of warnings for files in
/usr/share/aclocal, so I stuck with 1.7

I also did 

automake-1.7 --add-missing --force-missing --copy

to update the support files (config.guess, etc), as linda complained
they were out of date.

For future reference, this also updated INSTALL (I had to re-add the
header) and COPYING (It "updated" it to a copy of the GPL!)

Something in the process modified the syntax of configure.in slightly,
I assume that isn't backwards compatible.

Right, now to tackle the docs...
