I had the exact same problem a couple of days ago (I posted 
"LFS-5.1.1 Ch.6 - Util-linux-2.12a build problems" Thu, 19 Aug 
2004 01:40:39). 

Looking inside config.h you can get an idea of the significance 
of that error:

[root at terry:~] # cat /tools/include/linux/config.h


#include <linux/autoconf.h>


So you can either fix that include to point to the empty autoconf.h
at /usr/include/linux/autoconf.h or you can touch a new autoconf.h
into what should oddly be /tools/include/linux/linux/autoconf.h
since the config.h is pointing to a linux directory inside the 
/tools/include/linux directory, but I might have a bug in my head
about how these directory hierarchies actually work.

I changed the include address to /usr/include/linux/autoconf.h 
and make gave no more errors.
