A few of the autotools files are missing from make's -src package
on sourceware.  Until the maintainer fixes & makes a new release, just copy:

  install-sh
  config.sub
  config.guess

from /usr/share/automake/ (assuming you have the automake package
installed).

What are you trying to install? Where did you get the software from? What distro are you using?

I don't have the automate package installed. I'm trying to install Erlang for concurrency programming, I have Ubuntu 8.04.

In ubuntu it should be included in the repositories. Just use synaptics or whatever package manager you refer and install it from there, or use apt-get install erlang

you should always check if the package exists in the synaptic and install it from there .... installing from source code should be you last last resort, since it is not always as smooth as it says it will be.... just a hint for the future.. ;)

Thank you all for your information. I installed automake and copied those files in the directory signalled by the ./configure error, but I still get that error. How is it possible?? :D

If you install the way we entioned, you don't need to install anything else yourself. Synaptic or apt-get will take care of all dependencies. Why aren't you installing that way?
