I just downloaded the source code from CVS, but when I
run the 'bootstrap' script, I get the following output:

+ aclocal -I config
aclocal: configure.in: 143: macro `AM_PROG_LIBTOOL' not
found in library
+ libtoolize --force --copy
./bootstrap: line 4: libtoolize: command not found
+ autoheader
autoheader: error: AC_CONFIG_HEADERS not found in
configure.in
+ automake --add-missing --copy
configure.in: no proper invocation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
was found.
configure.in: You should verify that configure.in
invokes AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE,
configure.in: that aclocal.m4 is present in the
top-level directory,
configure.in: and that aclocal.m4 was recently
regenerated (using aclocal).
configure.in:6: installing `config/config.guess'
configure.in:6: installing `config/config.sub'
filesystems/cardfs/Makefile.am:3: Libtool library used
but `LIBTOOL' is undefined
filesystems/cardfs/Makefile.am:3:
filesystems/cardfs/Makefile.am:3: The usual way to
define `LIBTOOL' is to add `AC_PROG_LIBTOOL'
filesystems/cardfs/Makefile.am:3: to `configure.in' and
run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.
/usr/share/automake-1.8/am/depend2.am: am__fastdepCXX
does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
/usr/share/automake-1.8/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not
appear in AM_CONDITIONAL

(followed by lots of similar errors)

Am I missing something? I'm not overly familiar with
autoconf et al; I tend to write my Makefiles by hand,
otherwise I'd try to correct this.

Or should I just download a release version and hack on
that?
