I did have a problem when installing XCode 3.0,

I experienced the problem (in connection with Fink) when updating the Xcode that came with the Mac OS X 10.4.0 installation DVD (don't know about 10.5).

So one fix was to deinstall Xcode using the script that came with it (at the end of some readme file), and then install the later Xcode version from scratch. I decided though to erase the hard disk, install Mac OS X without development package, update it, and then install latest Xcode. Then the problem went away. Have fun! :-)

I checked on another machine with perfect setup: that appears
to be now the default behavior of Leopard's GCC.

And it also appears that Autoconf folks already know about it :)

I do not know about Mac OS X 10.5, but in the case of 10.4 the Fink developers pointed out that what was directory shouldn't, and when I did that reinstallation indicated above, the problem went away. So it was verified to be a bug in the updating of Xcode, but I never found exactly what caused it.

Sorry for the noise.

Now that Mac OS X 10.5 is certified UNIX on Intel machines, it is probably important to sort this out. POSIX is nowadays a subset of UNIX, or so the pages of the standard said.
