This would be a pretty ancient - outdated for >4 years.

rtems-4.5.x requires autoconf-2.13 and automake-1.4

rtems-snapshots require autoconf-2.52 and automake >= 1.6

Unless you report bugs, nobody will be able to help you.

rtems-snapshots w/ autoconf-2.52 is supposed to work on Solaris, but is
hardly tested. rtems-4.5.0 does not work with autoconf != 2.13.

Finally: Why don't you install the corresponding auto*tools toolchain
into a separate directory if your default auto*tools versions do not
match with versions required by RTEMS? This is what we do for Linux.
