This sounds like a dependency link hasn't been set up during the install. Which also sounds like you missed a stage.
Are you sure that you have all of the dependencies installed (including glibc-devel libtools, etc.)? There's a list in the README file along with instructions on how to check you have the right version.
Also, did you run the make mrproper stage?
I doubt that this is a missing file from the source tarball. If it was, this would mean that the tarball you have is broken, because a bug like that in a standard release would have been reported by now. But you can easily check; download the MD5 checksum file for the source you downloaded and then use md5sum to check it against the source .tar.bz2 or .tar.gz file. For more details, open a terminal and type:
info coreutils md5sum
