[CentOS] Bug in CentOS Autotools

I've installed autoconf and automake from the CentOS repository. When I 
get liblouisutdml from its repository and run the autogen.sh script and 
then configure I get the error I explained in my previous message. 
Autoconf is generating a bad configure script. I've had the same problem 
on other CentOS installations, and nobody could figure out what it was. 
The nearest I can come is that some development file is missing from 
CentOS. This is not a problem for me to look at but for the CentOS 
experts. I just want to get my project to build, as it did on rhel. If I  
need to install something else from the CentOS repository, please tell 
me what.
