configure.ac:25: error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.
    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.
/usr/share/aclocal-1.13/obsolete-err.m4:12: AM_CONFIG_HEADER is expanded from...
configure.ac:25: the top level
autom4te-2.69: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal-1.13: error: echo failed with exit status: 1

As a workaround, setting WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.12 lets the build succeed.

Reproducible: Always
