Today I tried to compile gpaint, but after doing a 'git clone' I couldn't run ./configure.

The error shown:

configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash ./config.sub

After switching computers, trying again and the problem repeating, I figured out:

$ls -l
config.guess -> /usr/share/automake-1.13/config.guess
config.sub -> /usr/share/automake-1.13/config.sub
depcomp -> /usr/share/automake-1.13/depcomp
ltmain.sh -> /usr/share/libtool/config/ltmain.sh
missing -> /usr/share/automake-1.13/missing

The files that were symbolic links were all broken. But the machines have automake installed! So I checked the dirs that symlinks wanted.

To make it short, different versions of automake were present, on both machines (previous and following versions, by the way; e.g., 1.11 and 1.4).

I don't know why this happens, but I guess it shouldn't.
