Hello, All

I want compile the strongswan 4.4.0 from scratch, namely, I want to generate the Makefile by autoconf & automake automatically.
But failed.

[root at femtoGPS strongswan-4.4.0]# uname -a
Linux femtoGPS 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 #1 Tue Mar 14 15:48:33 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I used the commands sequencely as below in a Fedora Linux system, please refer to the logs of the attachment.
(1) autoscan
(2) cp ./configure.scan ./configure.ac
(3) modify configure.ac, adding AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(strongswan, 4.4.0);
(4) aclocal
(5) autoconf
issue 1: I met below warning after running autoconf.
[root at femtoGPS strongswan-4.4.0]# autoconf
configure.ac:100: warning: AC_COMPILE_IFELSE was called before AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS
../../lib/autoconf/functions.m4:1676: AC_FUNC_STRNLEN is expanded from...
configure.ac:100: the top level
configure.ac:100: warning: AC_RUN_IFELSE was called before AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS
(6) autoheader
(7) automake --add-missing     
issue 2: no Makefile.in generated after running automake --add-missing
(8) ./configure
Expected result: The Makefile should be generated
Actual result:      No Makefile generated and below msgs show:
                         config.status: error: cannot find input file: `Makefile.in'.
