Apple really removed autoconf and automake from Xcode 4.3. And it makes sense, given their aversion against GPL software.

This has been confirmed by both the MacPorts and Fink teams (I am a member of the latter).

While it is not true that one can't build SDL_sound anymore (one "just" needs to install autoconf and automake, e.g. by hand, using MacPorts, Fink or Brew), it certainly gives yet another very good reason for a new SDL_sound release.

At this point, even a 1.0.3a re-release with just the autoconf stuff regenerated would help a lot of people... But a 1.0.4 or 1.1 certainly would be much better.

And I hereby renew my offer to help with this if I can.
