Generating ./configure script from cvs

How does one create the configure script for Gnumeric from the CVS archive? I
have checked out the gnumeric package and run autoconf in its directory, but
autoconf gives an error:

autoconf: Undefined macros:

and produces a defective configure script that fails to run with this error:

./configure: line 533: syntax error near unexpected token `AM_CONFIG_HEADER(config.h)'
./configure: line 533: `AM_CONFIG_HEADER(config.h)'

An examination of configure reveals a number of autoconf tokens that have
apparently failed to expand:

    533 AM_CONFIG_HEADER(config.h)
    534 AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(gnumeric,0.56)
    536 AM_ACLOCAL_INCLUDE(macros)
    538 # Make --disable-static the default

I'm not familiar with autoconf/automake unfortunately, so about all I can do
with this is ask for help :-(.
