Design Adobe Illustrator for Web Design Logo Design Shapebuilder

I am working with CS4 and it looks like there is no Shapebuilder in this version. What is a good replacement?

In the video Shapebuilder is used to create the pencil's tip by overlaying a triangular and a rectangular surfaces, uniting the two shapes with Shapebuilder. I am working with CS4 Illustrator and there is no Shapebuilder available. What is the best way to do the same task without Shapebuilder?

Thank you!

Illustrator CS4 should have the pathfinder tool under window<pathfinder. This tool also allows you to join, add, subtract shapes and until very recently was my main tool for doing so.
