The following is a bit speculative -- it would need more information
to be sure:

Likely an old version of autoconf is invoked.  If you don't have a new
version installed, please do so.

On some systems the `autoconf' that is found in the PATH is a wrapper
for both old and new autoconf versions (2.13 vs 2.50+, for example).
Most such wrappers choose the new version if they see a,
but to make sure you could add an AC_PREREQ(2.59) to yours.

Surely if you extracted a tarball and did
  ./configure && make && make install
then autoconf should not be rerun at all; that is usually a sign of
wrong timestamps (or files missing from the tarball).  This is hard
to tell without further details though.
