Yeah, oddly enough that works.
Hmm... Let's look at that autogen.sh:
# This is hacky, because there are so many damn versions
# of autoconf/automake. It works with Debian woody, at least.
$ACLOCAL || aclocal-1.7 || aclocal-1.5 || aclocal || exit 1
Waitaminute... I ain't got no ACLOCAL env variable! If I run, say:
$ $FOOBAR || echo hi || echo bob || echo foo
I get nothin'. So, it's not running aclocal at all unless you set ACLOCAL:
$ ACLOCAL=aclocal sh ./autogen.sh
