           Summary: Debian requires small tweak to compile glibc
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 5.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: carson at starflare.org
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody), the current stable version, installs both autoconf 2.13 and 2.53; using 
Debian's packaging system, both must be installed to have one or the other (the included docs say this 
is for compatibility reasons).  However, the actual /usr/bin/autoconf is the binary for 2.13, which is 
insufficient to compile glibc; make quits shortly after it starts with a message of "Undefined macros."  
2.53 seems to work fine, however.  For the record, this is a i386 box, dunno if that makes a difference.

Perhaps a note could be added to the section on glibc to this effect?
