 I think you need to upgrade autoconf.  I'm fairly sure this problem has
come up before, always from debian, so you should be able to find it at - my suggestion is to either upgrade
it on the host, or just build the version you will be building later (if
you want to keep the debian system, perhaps install it into /usr/local,
as long as that is ahead of /usr on your PATH, or just install it into
/tools before building glibc).
