newlib not building (needs aclocal)

I think something you've changed is forcing the newlib build to now need 
a local installation of automake.  This wasn't needed before unless you 
were updating the makefiles locally.

CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd [...]/libgloss && /bin/bash 
[...]/missing aclocal-1.15 -I . -I .. -I ../config
[...]/missing: line 81: aclocal-1.15: command not found
WARNING: 'aclocal-1.15' is missing on your system.
          You should only need it if you modified 'acinclude.m4' or
          '' or m4 files included by ''.

Did you leave something out of a commit somewhere?  If not, how can this 
be fixed so that we don't need automake during normal builds from the repo?


PS While I appreciate what you're trying to do here, the timing couldn't 
be worse given that we're trying to stabilize a GCC release and all my 
builds are breaking at present.
