The file autoconf.h is made when you install the kernel in /usr/src/ and
configure it precisely as written in the book.  

If the file is missing, you need to install and configure the kernel
(tar -x ..., make config, make dep and then make the static links).

The file kernel.h is also part of the kernel.  It is not installed in
/boot (I think /boot is a mistake).

Install the kernel properly and you will have this file.

If /boot isn't a mistake please cut and paste the *exact* commands you
issued and the *exact* error messages you received.
