cpp sanity check fails on parisc linux

I'm having here some problems compiling the lwp source on my hppa1.1
machine. It's a B180L Visualize Workstation on which I run linux
2.6.3-rc1-pa2 kernel from the parisc-linux cvs.

I tried both the lwp-1.10 tarball and the CVS Version. Both with
different failures.

First of all I downloaded all the tarballs and installed the client on
my iBook - except coda itself, this I had to fetch from the CVS. After
that I scp'ed the sources to my hppa changed to the lwp-1.10 directory
and started a ``make clean". Than I ./configure'd the source and let it
make. After a while make did complain, that fasttime.lo would be the
wrong fileformat. Okay I thougth, maybe due to first compilation on my
iBook. Well the CVS worked so perfectly for coda so I decided to fetch
lwp from CVS too and started ``./" after I have fetched it.
Well bootstrap didn't even finish without complaining a bit...

farfuglaheimili:/usr/src/lwp# ./
autoheader: error: AC_CONFIG_HEADERS not found in
aclocal: 25: macro `AM_PROG_AS' not found in library
automake: installing `./install-sh'

      If this token and others are legitimate, please use
      See the Autoconf documentation. error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONFIG_HEADER error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_AS error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_LIBTOOL error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONDITIONAL

Okay, then back to the lwp-1.10 tarball I thought. I changed to the
lwp-1.10 dir and made ``make clean && ./" which made it
perfectly through. ./configure but then did complain that my cpp fails
the sanity check...

My cpp version is 3.3.2-2 and the whole system is a debian unstable.

Could it be, that hppa1.1 architecture is not supported or what am I
doing wrong?

Have a nice day,
