Yup, the extra commands are necessary.  The AM_ macro gets defined
when aclocal is run. There is a script autogen.sh which runs all the
extra commands, but unfortunately it is not mentioned in the docs yet
(will add it).

The "make check" stage fails in complex/ at the moment, as that
directory is still under development.
