x11/libX11 is one of several ports that stop my upgrading xorg and kde.

When I try to build libX11 or libSM I find similar error messages  
about an old version of automake and I haven't been able to make it  
use a newer one.


7.3-STABLE FreeBSD 7.3-STABLE #1010: Thu May  6 05:36:44 CDT 2010

Ports tree up to date as of this morning.

I started with the oldest of UPDATING that I hadn't done.

   AFFECTS: users of security/gnome-keyring
   AUTHOR: kwm at FreeBSD.org

   libgnome-keyring was split out of the gnome-keyring package.  Perform the
   following before doing your normal upgrade steps:

         pkg_delete -f "gnome-keyring-*"
         portmaster security/gnome-keyring

This resulted in libX11 error that follows:

configure.ac:462: the top level
configure.ac:10: your implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from an
configure.ac:10: old Automake version.  You should recreate aclocal.m4
configure.ac:10: with aclocal and run automake again.

/usr/local/share/automake-1.10/am/depend2.am:   The usual way to  
define `am__fastdepCC' is to add `AC_PROG_CC'

run `aclocal' and `autoconf' again.

Any help appreciated.  Maybe I should up date to 8.0 or ???
