Compiling pacman from source fails

I'm trying to build pacman from source (for experimenting and learning) and I'm running into issues while running `autoconf`.

$ autoconf error: required file 'build-aux/config.rpath' not found

The file is indeed not there. If I create a dummy file

touch build-aux/config.rpath

does get me past the error and generates a `configure` script, but said configure script fails because it really does need whatever config.rpath is suppose to contain.

I've tried both pacman-master and pacman-v5.2.1 with the same results. What am I missing?

autoconf version = 2.69
automake version = 1.15.1
libtoolize version = 2.4.6

Re: Compiling pacman from source fails

If you want to use autotools, run "autoreconf -vif". Then configure away.
