Hi all,

I'm trying to build a full develop environment with buildroot.
Now I'm getting this message while building automake:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for i386-linux-strip... i386-linux-strip
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
configure: error: Autoconf 2.52 or better is required
make: *** [/root/buildroot/build_i386/automake-1.6.3/.configured] Error 1

Which is pretty weird since autoconf 2.57 gets installed right before automake 
and with success. Is this a bug in the buildroot script(s) ?
