I'm not authorized to chage the status, so I'll simply put this in a comment:

Pretty sure this is a duplicate of Bug 154438.

The suggested change to the ebuild mentioned there solved this problem for me.
Comment 6 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-10-11 11:42:00 UTC
No it doesn't seem to be a duplicate; by the way forcing autoconf 2.13 here is not the solution since there _is_ a bug in that file.
Comment 7 BlackWhiteAtgentoo 2009-03-18 19:36:02 UTC
method provided by Bug 154438 does fix the problem.
You just use your autoconf and autoheader version provided by your system.
