Thaks to all, I don't knew the use of bootstrap scripts and now I found it very helpful.
Now seems to work, only one things automake and autoconf aren't the last  in the rtems site like this bootstrap don't work. I have taken it from gnu site.
Another thing, I have made little change at leaf.cfg and main.cfg like this I'm able to build, by a mine script, an application for a number of processors (node) which I define as a parameters of 
the script.:-))

Ralf's right.  Once you have all the's in place and are 
tinkering with them, use --enable-maintainer-mode and things will get 
regenerated without you worrying about it.

I used a poor choice of words.  I just meant that running bootstrap
is easy and a single command.  It is not difficult or error prone
to run the real autotool command sequence.  The only error that can
happen is a human not doing the commands right.  Bootstrap eliminates
that risk.

Sorry guys.  I used a very poor choice of word.  I really believe in
automake and autoconf and am glad that RTEMS is using it.
