Hi guys

A complete non-dev/programmer here so please go easy on me.
I'm trying to compile torsocks with 'mock', while 'tor' 
compiles okey for 'torsock' I fail with:
configure.ac:20: comes from Automake 1.16.1.  You should 
configure.ac:20: aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake 
WARNING: 'automake-1.16' is probably too old.
          You should only need it if you modified 
'Makefile.am' or
          'configure.ac' or m4 files included by 
          The 'automake' program is part of the GNU Automake 
          It also requires GNU Autoconf, GNU m4 and Perl in 
order to run:
make[1]: *** [Makefile:600: Makefile.in] Error 63
make: *** [Makefile:466: all-recursive] Error 1

My setup is Centos 9 and obviously I do it with an rpm/spec.
Would you guys be kind to guide me to troubleshoot this?
many thanks, L.
