I think that's because Chuck also ported the Gentoo wrappers, to select 
either of autoconf-2.13 or autoconf-2.61, dependent on the AC_PREREQ in 
the or processed, (and a similar capability 
for alternative automake versions, IIRC).

To use those Gentoo wrapped versions, you have to install the wrappers, 
which are found in the autoconf-4-1-bin.tar.bz2 tarball, for autoconf, 
and automake-3-1-bin.tar.bz2 for automake.

Alternatively, you could just install from stock FSF sources, to get 
normal behaviour for autoconf-2.61 and automake-1.10, (or even any more 
recent releases), if you don't require the older version support.
