You almost certainly have a broken autotools installation (AC_DEFINE
should _never_ be unavailable). Is it possible that the packages have
been moved from the location specified at configure-time?
For example, were autoconf, automake, et. al. configured with something
./configure --prefix=[some temporary location]
installed, and then moved to /usr/local? Redefining "prefix" at install
time to accomplish the same thing might also be a no-no (and should never
be necessary since GNU packages are supposed to always honor DESTDIR).
The output from "grep autom4te_perllibdir /usr/local/bin/autom4te" would
Additionally, it appears that aclocal isn't finding the X autoconf macros.
Make sure that the "-I" option passed to aclocal in the "ACLOCAL"
environment variable (you did set the ACLOCAL environment variable,
right?) is pointing to the right place ([ProjectRoot]/share/aclocal).
