I've got the following problem, if I try to compile autoconf, it appears
after starting 'make':
make[3]: Leaving directory `/sources/autoconf-2.59/lib'
../../tests/autom4te                            \
        --language=m4sugar                      \
        --freeze                        \
Can't locate Data/ in @INC (@INC contains:

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/sources/autoconf-2.59/lib'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I guess I know, what the problem is, but I don't know how to solve it.

I tried to use autoconf 2.59 instead of autoconf 2.57 because I thougt
the archive could be demaged.

Please help me...
