Great! Do you think you could be able to keep the Mac port working as
new versions are released? It would be pity to see a situation like with
the Windows port, latest build being version 0.9.6 from 2007.
Do you possibly want to develop audio interfacing for Mac too? There
would be two separate projects: an output module for playing sound from
PA and a virtual sound card driver for redirecting sound from any
program to PA.

The errors you are getting mean that you have too old automake. Version
1.11 is required.
(The following is written as if you were using Linux - I don't know if
the following is valid advice for Macs.) If you have to install automake
from source and you choose /usr/local/ as the installation prefix, at
least I ran into the problem that aclocal searches .m4 files
from /usr/local/share/aclocal, while some (most?) of the needed .m4
files are located at /usr/share/aclocal. I worked around the problem by
copying everything from /usr/share/aclocal to /usr/local/share/aclocal.
That's of course a very dirty workaround. If someone knows how to tell
aclocal to use both directories, I'd be interested. aclocal accepts the
-I parameter, but I don't know where that should be specified in the
Hopefully this helps at least a little.
