I'd be wary of upgrading the autoconf and configure requirements for
Kaffe, simply because you'll reduce the number of folks willing and
able to deal with rebuilding Kaffe's build infrastructure even further.

Also, its not clear to me why Kaffe's build system needs to be
upgraded to build third-party libraries.  Shouldn't this library be
buildable/linkable without being part of Kaffe's build system?
