I experienced this issue also. For reference, here is the output from my aclocal.out.

***** aclocal *****
***** PWD: /var/tmp/portage/sci-libs/geos-3.3.8-r1/work/geos-3.3.8
***** aclocal -I macros

aclocal-1.13: warning: autoconf input should be named '', not '' error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.
    You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.

Does this issue persist in sci-libs/geos-3.4.1?
