This looks like a path issue (c.f. below)

automake (rsp. perl) is searching in /opt/rtems-4.11/share/autoconf, 
while you seem to be having the file in question under 
/mingw/opt/rtems-4.11/share/autoconf (Also note the /mingw/bin/autom4te 
in the error message above).

The error message also contains references to /usr/lib/*perl in @INC, 
which would mean it is expecting to find perl-modules without 
/mingw-prefix. Can you verify if your perl is able to find its modules?


P.S.: I vaguely recall there is some setting or specialized shell in 
either mingw or cygwin which cause a shell to operate without prefix.
Unfortunately I don't have a working mingw nor cygwin installation nor 
do I recall the details.
