The latest version of autopoint (0.18.3.1) defaults to / (root) if the macro directory is not specified in either the configure.ac file or the Makefile.am file. Not setting these values may also cause issues with aclocal[1]. For more information, please see the Gentoo lxtask bug[2].

The solution is to add AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4]) to configure.ac and to add ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS= -I m4 to Makefile.am. I've attached a patch that adds these values.

Thanks.
