So your path is correct. don't mind what whereis says, which gets it

the CM version is 1.6.3

the CM version is 2.5.7

Are you sure you have the latest version of his files?  i don't  
remember i upgraded either of those recently, i'm pretty sure they are  
from CM

My bootstrap says this.
+ aclocal -I autotools
+ libtoolize --force --copy
You should update your `aclocal.m4' by running aclocal.
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `autotools'.
+ autoheader
+ automake --add-missing --copy
configure.in:10: `automake requires `AM_CONFIG_HEADER', not  
+ autoconf
+ rm -f config.cache

So the problem is definitely with your autoconf version.
