emerge error with sqlite

I am trying to upgrade some packages on my Gentoo system.
I am now getting this error, which is stopping a lot of things installing now.

I'd like to get sqlite installed, or mask it so it installs an older version.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hello auskento.

From what I'm seeing in your logs, it seems that you don't have autoconf installed. Become root and enter this into a terminal:
emerge autoconf
This should solve the problem


emerge, gentoo, sqlite
