Although the sinclude issue went away, it seems I may have
misconfigured automake..

epan/Makefile.am:45: Libtool library used but `LIBTOOL' is undefined
epan/Makefile.am:45:   The usual way to define `LIBTOOL' is to add
`AC_PROG_LIBTOOL'
epan/Makefile.am:45:   to `configure.in' and run `aclocal' and
`autoconf' again.
epan/Makefile.am:45:   If `AC_PROG_LIBTOOL' is in `configure.in', make sure
epan/Makefile.am:45:   its definition is in aclocal's search path.
