That and only that.  If this does not work that means that this spec
file is not correct, or complete, or whatever ...  A better check is
if 'rpmbuild --rebuild <whatever>.src.rpm' actually rebuilds. It is
much healthier if you can do that in different environments although
you may put togother something some distribution specific.

Somebody checked that into svn but this not really quarantee that
what you found there is ok.  You may have corrections to contribute.

"Bare" repository sources quite often not enough to make them into
a package but if you are running then all these should be
added to your build environment "automagically".

No idea from where you got this "X".  Clearly something was not
expanded properly and is messing things up.  Error messages are
correct though.  The trouble is that all these autotools consists
of multilevel scripts, makefiles and so on and you have carefuly
track that back to find out what is wrong.  'libtool' is a shell
script though so running it with '/bin/sh -x ...' may give you quite
a bit of information.

You seem to be prepending "X" all over the place.  Are you sure that
this is not a slip of a finger?  It appears that this should be an
empty string instead.
