[Samba] autogen.sh failing over samba share

I have the source tree of a project exported with samba. autogen.sh on
the host filesystem (ext4) runs fine while it fails on the samba share

autoreconf: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext
autoreconf: running: aclocal -I m4
Use of uninitialized value $msg in concatenation (.) or string at
/usr/bin/autom4te line 1038.
unknown channel m4trace:configure.ac:154: -1 at
/usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/Channels.pm line 634
	Autom4te::Channels::msg('m4trace:configure.ac:154: -1', undef,
'warning: ') called at /usr/bin/autom4te line 1038
aclocal: autom4te failed with exit status: 1
autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 1

The above fails even in the simple case of mounting the samba share on
the same machine that exports it.

This is on ubuntu 9.10 with stock samba:
samba	2:3.4.0-3ubuntu5

options for share from smb.conf:
   ea support = yes
   read only = no
   browseable = no
   guest ok = no
   valid users = sap
   create mask = 0644
   directory mask = 0755

The host filesystem is ext4 (i enabled extended attributed as a blind
shot to fix this, it fails with and without extended attributes)
