I tried to compile the texlive system which is now in svn.

The first problem is that in Build/source/Work/texk/devnag/src
automake-1.6.2 is required but I had only version 1.6.3.  The problem
disappeard when I installed 1.6.2.  However, I fear that just
downgrading the files provided by Gentoo will cause problems when I
update the system.  So I installed it in my $HOME.  Are newer versions
of automake more tolerant?

Make still aborts with the following messages:

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
