 You'd help everyone if you were clear about the problem : is it in
chapter 5 or chapter 6 ?  You say "I can compile glibc-..., but when I
try to make the package..." - compiling and making are pretty much the
same thing.  Do you mean you completed it successfully in chapter 5, but
now can't build it in chapter 6 ?

 If there is any output from autoconf above what you've quoted, it might
be useful.

 Alternatively, if you are still in chapter 5 then I think you need to
fully install autoconf on your host distro.  As far as I can see, you
never said which distro you're using.
