An update on my side from my questions earlier below:
I eventually had to get these packages - automake, autoconf, libtool (and
all their dependent packages) installed with the help of sysadmin on each of
the Unix platforms where I wanted to build these libraries.
I think it would be better if we can get this requirement captured somewhere
as part of doc.
