RTEMS snapshots are generally quite stable.  Both 4.5.1 and 
20020301 are quite old at this point so if you don't have all the 
tools for them already installed, I would recommend going to
a more modern snapshot.  I know that some of the older RPMs
are difficult to get installed on newers versions of Linux.

Sounds like an automake/autoconf version problem.  Why don't you simply
try the latest snapshot and the tools that came with it?
