Then running ./ gives an error similar to the "`./'
not found". Is this expected, or something that could be fixed?

It does seem to work when I do as follows on a clean dir:
./ [outputting the same error]

>autoreconf -i  (30140)
libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in `.'.
libtoolize: copying file `./'
libtoolize: Consider adding `AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' to and
libtoolize: rerunning libtoolize, to keep the correct libtool macros in-tree.
libtoolize: Consider adding `-I m4' to ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in
>autoreconf -i (30140) returned '0'

./ [this time it proceeds without errors, only warnings, and
runs ./configure as expected]

However this last arrangement doesn't look to me as intended.

It seems that this affects users of recent versions of automake
(>1.6). I use 1.11.3.
