I'm no expert on all that auto-* malarkey, but I notice one thing:

I don't even _have_ a /usr/share/autoconf directory on my installation,
and bootstrap.sh WJFFM. Perhaps there is some residual bogosity lurking in
there from old versions?
I don't have any /usr/bin/autom4te-2.5x either. My Channels.pm lives
Sounds like you have some stray stuff going on?
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
