GCC shouldn't use autoconf, unless you did something to gcc and now it
thinks that it needs autoconf. Did you apply a patch other than the one
that's mentioned in the lfs book? It can also be caused by the fact that a
configure.in file has a newer timestamp than a configure file, in which
cause 'configure' thinks it needs to be re-built. Perhaps you opened a
configure.in file and saved it (even though you may not have made changes,
the timestamp would have been updated in that case).
And, did you remove gcc-build after you finished with it in chapter 5?
