Yes i get this error message:

It seems that the execution of "automake --foreign -a --copy
--include-deps" has failed. See above for
the specific error message that caused it to abort.

This *MAY* be caused by an older version of one of the required
packages. Please make sure you are using at least the following

GNU Autoconf 2.59
GNU Automake 1.9.6
GNU Libtool 1.5.16

I do not have valgrind output. What i have done is run this job on 4
nodes with two cpus (8 tasks) and run it for a long period and monitor
the memory usage with top. What we see is that it consumes more and more
