That's pretty old.  You should try updating it, but it may not be
trivial in this case.  You could also ask the maintainers to use a more
recent Libtool.

Most likely you should have used just

  ./configure --prefix=/home/sharad/rpm2/rpm-4.1/rpmmips --host=mipsel-linux

Then the configure script should find the correct $CC and $CXX itself, I

Hmm.  I can't say anything about this; that's probably due to RPM using
old versions of Autoconf (and possibly Automake) as well.  Most likely
the RPM maintainers can help you more.
