Thanks Steve and Sven,
I have made good progress.
My current error is
gcc-3.4 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../include -g -O2 -Wall
-pedantic -Werror -MT libalut_la-alutLoader.lo - MD -MP
-MF .deps/libalut_la-alutLoader.Tpo -c alutLoader.c -fPIC -DPIC
alutLoader.c: In function `_alutLoadAUFile':
alutLoader.c:769: warning: passing arg 2 of pointer to function from
incompatible pointer type
make: *** [libalut_la-alutLoader.lo] Error 1

I knew there was something Ubuntu Breezy (5.10) running the generic

Heh... I found aclocal that was symlinked to aclocal-1.6 despite 1.9
being installed. 1.9 being 1.9.5 from memory Gotta love the logic of
this. Found the same applied to some of the other auto* tools. Hence the
inconsistency of the age age of the tools.

This is on a ubuntu (Breezy 5.10) system.
