Running autoconf fails with a missing file (on Linux and OpenBSD):

$ autoconf-2.68
configure.in:524: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE_DIR
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.

The aclocal.m4 has an "sinclude(common/ac_define_dir.m4)" which is failing.

Can you put a copy of the ac_define_dir.m4 in the common/ subdirectory?

The autoconf works using this ac_define_dir.m4 found here on sourceforge:

http://ac-archive.sourceforge.net/ac-archive/ac_define_dir.html
