I am unable to build the letor module. I am generating the configure file
using autoconf. The configure file generated is throwing the error
./configure: line 2057: syntax error near unexpected token `1.10.1'
./configure: line 2057: `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(1.10.1 -Wportability tar-ustar)`
I am not too sure what to do with this. Need help with this.

Thank You
