First thing to check is for scratchbox-isms

ls -laF in the source will often show things like:

depcomp -> /scratchbox/tools/autotools/automake-1.7/share/automake-1.7/depcomp*
missing -> /scratchbox/tools/autotools/automake-1.7/share/automake-1.7/missing*                     
config.guess -> /scratchbox/compilers/cs2005q3.2-glibc2.5-arm/arch_tools/share/libtool/config.guess*

In this case, run:

 automake --add-missing

You may need create manadatory Debian files like NEWS etc
