problems building memcache-2.1.2 php extension

I'm trying to build the memcache client extension (2.1.2) for php on linux.

I downloaded the zip myself and ran phpize, but got the following error: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

AutoConf and automake are completely foreign entities to me.

Can anyone help?

BTW I also tried an alternate approproach -- using PEAR to download, 
build and install memcache.

When I run pear install memcache it fails with this:

No handlers for package.xml version 2.0

I looked on the web and realized that support for package.xml version 
2.0 requires PEAR 1.6.
I actually am running that version so I'm not sure why it doesn't 
recognize the the package.
