Does it work at all?
I just downloaded the most recent version and ran configure, and among
other things it said:-

checking for awk... no
checking for working help2man... missing
checking for perl... no
configure.: WARNING: autoscan will not be built since perl is not found
checking for a BSD compatible install... ./install-sh -c


[N:\eval\autoconf-2.49c]which awk

[N:\eval\autoconf-2.49c]which perl

[N:\eval\autoconf-2.49c]which install
