Yes, I knew I have to use gmake instead of the BSD one. So, I have set the "export MAKE=gmake" before the installation process. Your reply reminder me of the possibility that I have failed to install some other related components. After install the GUN version of automake, the problem is solved. Thanks for your reply again.
