You're not alone here, This issue, most likely, started when automake
1.10 was installed on your computer.  This issue affects anyone (on
any distro) that compiled e from source using automake 1.10.  I
maintain the e packages for my distribution as well, and we have
switched to automake 1.10, so my end users are in the same situation
:(.  Another thread on this Mailing List had suggestions like
WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.9.  For me that does not seem to change anything.
From my understanding of the issue, this is something that can (and
should?) be fixed by the e team (when they feel it's time) in the way
they are dealing with the gettext related autofoo stuffs.
