Try also cleaning out the directory and its config.cache after you 
downgrade autoconf.  In fact, just untar the tarball all over again and 
start fresh, after the downgrade of course.  It is always helpful to do a 
make clean before you acutally start to build your programs.  It is always 
possible that the person who tarred the ball left some object files in, 
though cleaning them out would be more of an optimization benefit rather 
than to overcome compiler errors.

Aside:  KDE and many programs written for its libraries do not use autoconf 
2.x well.  KDE even states on their website that you should not use 
autoconf 2.x for compiling their stuff.  What is the benefit of the newer 
autoconf major version?  Why won't KDE developers bump up their code to use 
it?  Why is it used in LFS?
