autoreconf question

Hi experts,

I tried to run autoreconf, and I got the following error. Does anyone know what I missed?

user@pc:$  autoreconf -i
Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 182.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 182.
Can't exec "automake": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 183.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 183.
Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 290.
autoreconf2.50: failed to run aclocal: No such file or directory
--------------------------------
thanks!

Either aclocal and automake aren't installed, or you forgot to use "sudo" to run the command.

Hi,

I just tried again with sudo:

usr@pc$ sudo autoreconf -i
[sudo] password for usr:
Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 182.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 182.
Can't exec "automake": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf2.50 line 183.

Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 290.
autoreconf2.50: failed to run aclocal: No such file or directory
-----------------------------------------------
So I guess "Either aclocal and automake aren't installed"?  How do I install them? Thanks.

I just installed automake and tried again,
now I got:

 sudo autoreconf -i
autoreconf2.50: configure.ac: AM_GNU_GETTEXT is used, but not AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION
Makefile.am:172: `:='-style assignments are not portable
Makefile.am:175: `%'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension

-----------------------------------
what did I miss? Thanks
