Doesn't build with automake-1.13.

Compiles when downgrading automake to 1.12 version (as of xournal-git 20120913-1).

Doesn't build anymore:

@conan That's odd. While I also get the error message, it builds perfectly fine both on my machine and in a vanilla VM I just set up for testing.

Anyways, I did some updates with pkgrel=2:
- I added gettext to makedepends. According to the docs it is needed to build. Also, all but one .m4-files you mentioned is in gettext. Even if it's installed, the message doesn't go away, but it doesn't hurt I guess.
- I added gtk2 to depends, also because it's in the docs
- I replaced "./" by "autoreconf -i" as this seems to be the preferred way to do it
- I added "desktop-install" to the make line and an install-file which updates the caches (taken from the xournal abs PKGBUILD)

It says:

Please add the files
codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

And it fails to build with:

configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Getting those files should be automatic.
