Hi Juanjo,

The issue is probably that aclocal cannot find all the macro (.m4)
files, typically because Autoconf and Automake are installed with
different --prefix (e.g. one shipped and one custom installed).  Please
see the full discussion on https://github.com/ivmai/bdwgc/issues/16 if
you haven't done so.  If you need a custom version of either of the
autotools (Autoconf, Automake, and Libtool), it may be easiest to
install all of them to the same --prefix.
