That won't have the desired effect. autoconf, and automake likewise, aren't
programs. They're merely perl scripts, so they can't be linked (if you look
at make's output you see nothing is compiled or linked).

If gcc complains about autoconf missing, then it means you have done
something to gcc that you weren't supposed to, at least not something the
lfs-book tells you to do.

Somehow the file was modified so it ended up newer than the
configure script, which will cause autoconf to be run to re-build the
configure script.

Did you download gcc-2.95.3 or did you patch up an older version to bring
it to 2.95.3's level?
