Trying to run autogen

Erik Moe
I’m new to autogen/autoconf.  I’m trying to build urjag on macOS Sierra: svn://  I initially tried to build using the latest autoconf, automake, gettext provided by homebrew, but I keep getting an error "unknown channel m4trace: -1- AS_VAR_APPEND(ac_configure_args, " '$ac_arg’”)”.  I then built my own copies of autoconf, automake and gettext using the versions that were specified in the autoconf-2.64, automake-1.10 and gettext-0.17.  Either way I get essentially the same error.  Could someone give me some direction as I don’t have much experience in this area.  I’ve attached the file.
