I've tested gnopernicus only with automake 1.7.3 and 1.4, but the problem 
that you are indicating is not apearing to me. I really encourage you to use 
automake-1.4, because, besides atk that requires automake 1.7.x ,I don't know 
other module from CVS (accessibility modules) that are working with automake 
1.7.x. Did you tried to build/compile gail with your GNU tools? Does it work 
for you?
I guarantee you that gnopernicus is building with automake-1.4 and 

In the mean time I will check what is happening with your version of automake.

For gnome-speech there is a bug in Please look at bug number 
109411 from bugzilla

 and apply the proposed patch OR simply remove the quotation marks at line 
128 from gnome-speech' . This will solve the problem that you 
are indicating.
