Hi Eric,

Thank you for your response. Do you have a classification or trade compliance 
group I can reach out to? I know other redhat products contain crypto and are 
export controlled. so I assume someone at your company (or a consultant 
perhaps) classified the software at some point. Even open source / free 
software can be export controlled.

Any assistance in getting me to the appropriate person or group at your company 
would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Sorry, but you're out of luck - no one here knows of an ECCN associated with 

I'm not a lawyer, but a quick google search for "open source eccn" leads me to 
believe that since Autoconf is freely available and does not deal with software 
encryption, it is exempt from needing an ECCN.  But you may have better luck by 
paying a third party to actually validate that for you (rather than relying on 
free and potentially incorrect advice); companies like Red Hat specialize in 
providing distributions of software that includes Autoconf in a manner that 
complies with export regulations, and may have a better answer for what they 
use in their distribution.
