print/apsfilter dependencies not finding aclocal & automake

Folks -

In attempting to build the port print/apsfilter, many of the (gnome 
related?) dependencies are failing as follows:

===>  Configuring for linc-1.0.3_2
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c -o root -g 
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether gmake sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake-1.4... missing

Note that aclocal and automake are noted as missing, but do exist on 
this 4.10-STABLE system.

[bsb at nipplehead bsb]$ locate automake

[bsb at nipplehead bsb]$ locate aclocal

The print/apsfilter dependency ports build and install as expected when 
'make install' is run for the individual dependency port.

Could anyone suggest how I might go about having the configure scripts 
find automake and aclocal when the print/apsfilter port tries to build 
its dependencies.  I have reverted to the /etc/defaults/make.conf to 
ensure none of my tweaks are causing this problem.

Any comments / suggestions would be quite welcome.
