Unable to find 'automake'

Using FreeBSD 5.4
While building 'portmanager', I noticed this error message:
Making all in libMG
Making all in src
cd ../.. && /bin/sh
automake --gnu libMG/src/Makefile
automake: not found
WARNING: `automake' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
you modified `Makefile.am', `acinclude.m4' or `configure.ac'.
You might want to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages.
Grab them from any GNU archive site.
I checked the /var/db/pkg directory and found this listing:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel - 512 Feb 22 21:26 automake-1.4.6_2/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel - 512 Feb 22 21:26 automake-1.5_2,1/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel - 512 Feb 22 21:26 automake-1.9.6/
Since the build finished without and problems, I assume that it is a
harmless error message. I was wondering though why it was displayed
however? Am I looking in the wrong place for the 'automake' program? I
have Perl 5.8.8 installed if that means anything.
