hello,

I just downloaded libshout from http://svn.xiph.org/icecast/branches/kh/ices

and tried to follow the instructions for compiling it. When I 
run ./autogen.sh, I get the following:

monkey:/usr/local/src/libshout-kh# ./autogen.sh
Checking for automake version
  found automake-1.6
  found aclocal-1.6
Generating configuration files for libshout, please wait....
  aclocal-1.6  -I m4
aclocal: couldn't open directory `m4': No such file or directory
  autoheader

  libtoolize --automake
  automake-1.6 --add-missing
configure.in:14: no proper implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE was found,
configure.in:14: probably because aclocal.m4 is missing...
configure.in:14: You should run aclocal to create this file, then
configure.in:14: run automake again.

I am going to run ./configure with no arguments - if you wish
to pass any to it, please specify them on the ./autogen.sh command line.

--- end ---

It's trying to look for a directory called 'm4', which doesn't exist. Does 
anyone know what I should do to get this to compile?
