Try to debug it: Edit `configure', search for the string
  whether autoconf works
and add
  set -x
before it (and maybe `set +x' some way down) to find out which command
hangs.  I'd suspect the
  eval $am_AUTOCONF -o /dev/null

but wouldn't have any idea why it should hang.  If this is correct, you
could try to execute this line manually: create consisting
of a line with `AC_INIT', execute autoconf as above with `/bin/sh -x' to
see where it hangs.  Post whatever you find.

Maybe autom4te finds a non-GNU m4?  Which autoconf version, by the way?
