./config.guess: No such file or directory

today i was trying to compile gaim, I installed autoconf, automake and other necessary libs to compile but it show me

salahuddin@debian:~/Desktop/compile/gaim-1.5.0$ ./configure
checking build system type… /bin/sh: ./config.guess: No such file or directory
configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

later I found it is a err of automake in my Debian testing

debian:/home/salahuddin/Desktop/compile/gaim-1.5.0# automake –add-missing
configure.ac:5: version mismatch. This is Automake 1.10,
configure.ac:5: but the definition used by this AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
configure.ac:5: comes from Automake 1.9.5. You should recreate
configure.ac:5: aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again.
