how can I rebuild autoconf.m4f ?

As a package maintainer, I've had to fix a problem for one of my
users, who's trying to use my package on HP-UX. This does not work
because my package is trying to use AC_CHECK_FUNCS([gettimeofday]),
which is broken in autoconf 2.57 as I've noticed reading

So - I noticed the patch that was mentionned in that thread, and saw
if has beenapplied in autoconf CVS, so I thought I should just apply
it over my local autoconf installation and that should fix this user's
issue. So I went ahead and applied the patch over my
/usr/share/autoconf/autoconf/c.m4 file. However, it turns out this is
not sufficient - I should also rebuild the autoconf.m4f file, which
contains a precompiled version of the other files.

Anyone know how I can rebuild autoconf.m4f ? I have not been able to
find any clues in the docs and/or in google.

It'd be nice if you could copy me in your replies, as I'm not on the list.

religious fundamentalists, operates through clandestine organizations,
has no respect for the democratic electoral process, bombs innocents,
and uses war to deny people their civil liberties." --The Boondocks
