It looks like the autoconf file has some sort of problem. It should be
ok to hand-edit your configure.in/ac file, but apparently the format you
have is not quite what EDE is expecting.
If you have your autoconf file open look at the AC_OUTPUT line and make
sure it is regular, such as:
AC_OUTPUT(Makefile, [date > stamp-h] )
Alternately, make a backup, and EDE will generate a new one. You can
then (perhaps) copy the key line into your old autoconf file.
