Hey Daniel,

As you suggested it look like it's not generated on ./configure when it 
The problem come from the AC_INIT macro interpretation from Autoconf. 
The AC_INIT macro we currently use was
introduced in autoconf 2.64. Look like you are running Autoconf 2.63.

AC_INIT 2.63:
*AC_INIT*(package, version,[bug-report],[tarname])

AC_INIT 2.64:
*AC_INIT*(package, version,[bug-report],[tarname],[url])

Which distribution are you using?

Cheers !
