Can't seem to get xorg-macros 1.6.0 to install

view story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Complete novice here. I am trying to use the 'autoconf' command and I keep getting an error message saying I need to have xorg-macros 1.3 or later. I have downloaded both 1.4 and 1.6.0 and tried to install them. Apparently all to no avail, because when I run the autoconf script it comes back as saying I only have 1.2.2 installed. Where do I start looking to figure out what I am screwing up? When I run the configure script in the util-macros-1.6.0 it seems to run right. Then I run make and it says "nothing to do for 'all'". Then I run 'make install' and it seems to run that but apparently it isn't getting installed. Here is the output of ./configure;make;make install linux-y52a:/home/alton/Download/util-macros-1.6.0 # ./configure;make;make install checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c configure: creating ./config.status config.status: creating xorg-macros.pc config.status: creating Makefile config.status: creating xorg-macros.m4 make: Nothing to be done for `all'. make[1]: Entering directory `/home/alton/Download/util-macros-1.6.0' make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'. test -z "/usr/local/share/aclocal" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/aclocal" /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'xorg-macros.m4' '/usr/local/share/aclocal/xorg-macros.m4' test -z "/usr/local/share/util-macros" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/util-macros" /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'INSTALL' '/usr/local/share/util-macros/INSTALL' test -z "/usr/local/share/pkgconfig" || /bin/mkdir -p "/usr/local/share/pkgconfig" /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 'xorg-macros.pc' '/usr/local/share/pkgconfig/xorg-macros.pc' make install-data-hook make[2]: Entering directory `/home/alton/Download/util-macros-1.6.0' rm -f /usr/local/share/aclocal/xorgversion.m4 make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/alton/Download/util-macros-1.6.0' make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/alton/Download/util-macros-1.6.0' (Distributions)
