[Users] Problem building claws-mail

I am currently running claws-mail 3.12.0 on openSUSE Leap 42.1. This is
the latest version provided as a pre-built .rpm in the openSUSE repos.

I would like to use a more up to date version, so I've followed the
instructions to git-clone the claws mail repository. However, when I
do ./autogen.sh or ./configure I get the following error

19:02 bob at hexagon:~/git_repos/claws> ./autogen.sh
./autogen.sh: line 39: aclocal: command not found
/home/bob/git_repos/claws/configure: line 2: syntax error near
unexpected token `2.59'
/home/bob/git_repos/claws/configure: line 2: `AC_PREREQ(2.59)'

What do I need to do to get past this blockage?
