If Chris does what I think he is planning, the automake and friends will 
only be needed for building from CVS.  When a release source tgz is 
created, it will already contain all of the files created by automake 
and friends.  How the CVS snapshots will work, I do not know, but they 
will probably require that the user have automake and friends installed.

So, in summary, from CVS, yes.  From the release source tgz on 
snort.org, no.
