Need some help building gnucash from svn

I've been asked to check the resolution on a bug I submitted some time
ago.  So, I want to build a current version of gnucash.  I previously
successfully built g-wrap and gnucash 1.9... from the tar files.  I've
got an up2date FC5 system.  Here's the steps and the problems I

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/
svn checkout gnucash
cd trunk

It suggested I run aclocal, which produced the warnings: warning: macro `AM_GUILE_VERSION_CHECK' not
found in library warning: macro `AM_PATH_GWRAP' not found in

./configure ran OK.

make failed: 

cd . && /bin/sh /mnt/USBe/swavrek/trunk/missing --run automake-1.9 --gnu
cd . && /bin/sh /mnt/USBe/swavrek/trunk/missing --run autoconf error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use
      See the Autoconf documentation. error: possibly undefined macro: AS_SCRUB_INCLUDE error: possibly undefined macro:
AM_GUILE_VERSION_CHECK error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PATH_GWRAP error: possibly undefined macro: AC_GWRAP_CHECK_GUILE
make: *** [configure] Error 1

Any suggestions on what's wrong and how I might correct it?
