This sounds like you haven't got libtool installed. The following should
install the dependencies you need:

   apt-get install autoconf automake bison flex gcc g++ \
           gperf libc6-dev make texinfo libtool

I may have missed some; my GCC4 build isn't up-to-date at present and the 
machine it's on has half the world installed on it, so it's a bit tricky 
to remember which things the build actually requires. At some point, I'll 
attempt a GCC4 build in a clean chroot, which will allow me to discover 
the actual things that are needed (unless someone else gets there first, 
of course ;)
