As the original poster (mike redtux demon co uk)

These are my comments on the whole issue

My reasons for trying cvs modules is to try out reported fixes for
outstanding bugs that have not made it to released packages.

Further info

Some cvs modules include a depmod file which is symlinked against
/usr/share/aclocal which does not exist in automake 1.4, but does in

I can configure an old cvs tree I have (libgail-gnome from April)

So it does definitely appear that there is a specific problem to do
with current RH7.3 automake/autoconf and current gnome2.
