This looks to me like a problem with the autoconf or automake on your system..
Try rebuilding fileutils from a clean extract of the sources, and..
touch *
in the build dir first, to prevent autoconf automake from running.

However, first check to see if there are any broken symlinks in the build dir
If so, goto /usr and look for the automake dir, ie. something like
I'm guessing there is no symlink named automake in /usr which points to
automake-1.5 ( or 1.7 etc... )
ln -s automake-1.5 automake
in /usr and try building again
