This is a formal request to either integrate Tushar's hint on installing 
multiple versions of autotools into the LFS book, or move autotools to 
BLFS and integrate the hint there. The rationale is that the current LFS 
SVN versions of autotools are incompatible with enough BLFS and BBLFS 
packages. E.g., popt and GRUB fail to build from source if patches are 
applied that require rerunning autotools.

If this is not done, I will have to either integrate this hint into the 
LiveCD build myself (thus hiding, but not solving the problem), or lose 
reiser4 support in GRUB on the LiveCD.
