I'll just note that there is a difference between automake errors and
compilation errors.  You're getting compilation errors.  This particular log
message was specifically about automake errors.  Please be more consise ;)

It's a known issue that libgoffice doesn't build cleanly on gcc4.  I'd 
you stop using gcc4 :)
