libX11 build failure

somehow libX11 fails to build here (with the gentoo live-ebuilds) :

Making all in nls
make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/x11-libs/libX11-9999/work/libX11-9999/nls'
Making all in am_ET.UTF-8
make[2]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/x11-libs/libX11-9999/work/libX11-9999/nls/am_ET.UTF-8'
Makefile:255: *** Recursive variable `cpp_verbose_' references itself (eventually).  Stop.

i think the problem is:
 # Support for automake 1.11 AM_SILENT_RULES
254 cpp_verbose = $(cpp_verbose_$(V))
255 cpp_verbose_ = $(cpp_verbose_$(AM_DEFAULT_VERBOSITY))
256 cpp_verbose_0 = @echo "  CPP   " $@;

perhaps there is just a missing AM_DEFAULT_VERBOSITY=0 in

the error is introduce in this commit:
commit 7dabcac973d0b6692a3cd62bd6d8e0467b24200b

    Add AM_SILENT_RULES support for cpp rules for man & nls files


p.s.: my automake is 1.11,  autoconf is 2.63
