It's a difficult problem, because it seems like
automake has redefined its meaning of "if" statements

Thus, ecasound cannot be built using the latest automake.
The error message suggests some nasty change is
The automake maintainer's message was "distribute ./configure
in your CVS repository", which is pretty unhelpful.
