You might be missing the links.

To ensure you actually have automake 1.8, run:
automake --version

If you don't get 1.8, you probably have two versions installed (the 1.4 
from before and the 1.8 you just installed) in different locations.  
You'll have to get rid of the 1.4 stuff.

If you do get 1.8, try just creating a soft link called automake-1.8 
referring to the copy of automake you have installed and one called 
aclocal-1.8 referring to the copy of aclocal you have installed.
