Why not install the Ubuntu autoconf 2.68 ?
The required modifications are included.

http://se.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...buntu1_all.deb
>>> sudo dpkg -i autoconf_2.68-1ubuntu1_all.deb

EDIT : May be it's not possible to use the above package ?
But compiling seems to be easy with the patch autoconf_2.68-1ubuntu1.diff.gz
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...buntu1.diff.gz
( autoconf-2.68.orig http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...68.orig.tar.gz )

cd autoconf-2.68/ && zcat autoconf_2.68-1ubuntu1.diff.gz | patch -p1
&& ./configure && make : No errors, Ubuntu 10.10 32bits.

i've installed autoconf 2.68 that you suggested to me. It returned no error when I compiled it but when I performed 'make check' ,error still there. I want to correct all errors in order to minimize the risk of errors when i build my first LFS. :-)

RROR: 446 tests were run,
5 failed (4 expected failures).
40 tests were skipped.
## -------------------------- ##
## testsuite.log was created. ##
## -------------------------- ##

Please send `tests/testsuite.log' and all information you think might help:

To: <bug-autoconf@gnu.org>
Subject: [GNU Autoconf 2.68] testsuite: 220 failed

You may investigate any problem if you feel able to do so, in which
case the test suite provides a good starting point. Its output may
be found below `tests/testsuite.dir'.

make[3]: *** [check-local] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/nicknuck/autoconf-2.68/tests'
make[2]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/nicknuck/autoconf-2.68/tests'
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/nicknuck/autoconf-2.68'
make: *** [check] Error 2

could you help me with this??

Ubuntu 11.10 : The default autoconf is version 2.68 !
http://packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric/autoconf

The install command is : sudo apt-get install autoconf


No internet ? The package autoconf_2.68-1ubuntu1_all.deb is here
http://au.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...buntu1_all.deb
The install command will then be :
sudo dpkg -i autoconf_2.68-1ubuntu1_all.deb
