It's got nothing to do with automake.
Sounds like your rpmbuild setup is hosed.
Google for the instructions RedHat posted on how to setup the 'buildmeister'
user id. That has instructions on how to be able to successfully create rpm
packages w/o being root - there is a magic environment variable you MUST set
to tell rpmbuild where the base directory is.

I download ntop from CVS, and then enjoy installation.
My platform is fedora 5.
First I edit ntop.spec, and then package it as tar.gz, rpmbuild -tb
ntop.tar.gz, then I got:
error: Legacy syntax is unsupported: copyright
error: line 15: Unknown tag: Copyright: GPL
on this side, I could understand, something wrong on the SPEC file, so
I checked, nothing related with this error, after several times
checking, now it is clear that, when rpmbuild package, system always
find ntop.spec from package/suse/suse.spec to replace what I edited
ntop.spec in ntop.tar.gz. This drive me crazy...
I am fighting with compile ntop as RPM package on fedora 5 whole day,
but it is no luck for me. Maybe I am too stupid, but anyway I am not a
specialist in automake something like that. So I couldn't find any
