I couldn't reproduce this with the bundled autogen.sh, which supplies "-I m4" to aclocal.

As far as I look at m4/init-package-version.m4, the AC_INIT diagnosis code in automake's init.m4 shouldn't be pulled.

Feel free to reopen if this is not the case.

autogen.sh fails to produce a usable configure script :

gettext $ ./configure
./configure: line 1764: syntax error near unexpected token `gettext,'
./configure: line 1764: `gl_INIT_PACKAGE(gettext, $VERSION_NUMBER)'

System specs: OSX 10.6 (darwin 10.8.0), gcc 4.2.1, autoconf 2.69, automake 1.12.5

When more closely inspected:

$ aclocal
configure.ac:25: error: AC_INIT should be called with package and version arguments

Fixed by the attached patch.
