[links-list] Problems with installing elinks-CVS

Hello

I am having problems when trying to install the lastest elinks from 
cvs at my school.

The problems seems to occur when running autogen.sh since I haven't
had any problems with installing the latest elinks stable [0.3.0]
(except when compiling it for HP-UX but that's another story ;).

Has it something to do with the versions of of automake and m4 being
used ? Seems odd since the installed versions is the same as or newer 
than the ones I use for my box at home and there I have no problems.

Any ideas ?

Here goes a lot of hopefully useful information:
