Emerge --info

Package is failing running aclocal.

Output of aclocal.out:

***** aclocal *****
***** PWD: /var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/libmcrypt-2.5.8-r2/work/libmcrypt-2.5.8
***** aclocal

aclocal-1.13: warning: autoconf input should be named '', not '' error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.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.
/usr/share/aclocal-1.13/obsolete-err.m4:12: AM_CONFIG_HEADER is expanded from... the top level
autom4te-2.69: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal-1.13: error: echo failed with exit status: 1

Making the following changes as suggested allows the package to build:

File :
   line:16 AC_CONFIG_HEADERS(config.h)
File : libltdl/
   line: 25 AC_CONFIG_HEADERS(

Apologies for not attaching a patch, I'm not sure how to make one. I have attached my emerge --info.
