autoconf / automake / aclocal

I am trying to build Music Player Daemon for the FreeCom MusicPal. I have written an output plugin that I think will drive the hardware, but now I am having trouble compiling this into the MPD source code. I have never really understood the GNU configure scripts (./configure and all that), so I have probably messed something up.
I have added new bits to configure.ac, Makefile.in etc. But now what do I do?

As far as I can tell from the simplest tutorial I can find suggests that I should just be able to edit configure.ac and Makefile.am then run autoconf, but it complains that the files are designed for automake version 1.6, and I have 1.10. The error suggests running aclocal, but this just leads to more errors....
