BLFS Book SVN 20051112.
Chapter 12. Programming 

PS: I used GCC 3.4.4 rather than GCC 3.3.6.

In the GCC check stage, there are some fixincludes tests. But 
it needs autogen, otherwise the command fails. But apparently,\
the check stage doesn't care about it.

I just want to make the build better, so I downloaded the
file and installed using ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install.

Everything is ok now. At least, it won't complain the missing autogen

The autogen can be obtained here.
