Running autogen.sh script is not enought for building qgis 0.8 from the sources as it throws several errors (undefined variables, needed by automake).

They are the standard (at this moment) versions in Debian stable:
libtoolize (GNU libtool) 1.5.6 autoheader (GNU Autoconf) 2.59 automake (GNU automake) 1.7.9 autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
Anyway, I quitted trying to build 0.8 in Debian stable because of the difficulties in having my own local QT4 installation (along with the QT3 for the global system).

What works for me is libtoolize 1.5.12, autoheader 2.59, automake 1.95., and autoconf 2.59, although what you have should be fine. I'm at a loss as to what could be wrong...
I have Qt3 and Qt4 installed without problems - as long as Qt4 is installed in a different directory to qt3, things should be fine. You'd need to point the qgis configure to the qt4 directory though.
