I would be surprised this would a problem in your host compiler (i.e. the
compiler used on your Ubuntu 9.10) and that we have to look for a solution

My bet is that this is a case of not using autoconf2.59 (gcc4.1 really
need this exact version).  Have you installed the autoconfig2.59 package ?
After you've done that, restart for scratch (ie. the srcdir needs to
be reconfigured using the recipe/scripts/reconf-*).
