Aclocal Problem Building BOINC Server Components

Trying to install the BOINC server software on Ubuntu according to instructions on
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/build_system.php
I’ve faced a problem. The command ./_autosetup returned with an error at the bottom of the output:

[email protected]:~/boinc$ ./_autosetup
Bootstrapping configure script and makefiles:
aclocal: configure.ac: 473: macro `AM_OPTIONS_WXRC‘ not found in library
Something failed …. please check error-message and re-run when fixed.
exiting…

After some hours i found out that the problem is bad aclocal version. There were two acocal versions on the system at a tyme. On aclocal –version i’ve got that the version was 1.4.2. Even if 1.9.2 was also installed according to instructions. After the removal of old version ./_autosetup returned with no errors.
