Hey Fred.

I have no access to my PC so I cannot verify this, but if I remember 
correctly, then I saw just the error you mentioned when I tried to uncomment 
as many lines as possible in bibletime-doc/configure.in.in.
I uncommented AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE, which gave me the error you mentioned (I 
believe). But currently this line is not uncommented in CVS:

dnl Automake doc recommends to do this only here. (Janos)
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(bibletime-doc, 1.1pre) dnl searches for some needed programs
## -- "some needed programs" include make (@SET_MAKE@), shell (@SHELL@)

So this might be the place to start looking. Something could be wrong with 
the macro definition in bibletime-doc/admin (does not support your automake 
or your automake is broken?), but then somebody should explain why the main 
package, bibletime, does work.
