Well, this still does not work:

FATAL ERROR: Autoconf version 2.50 or higher is required for this script

Sorry, no idea what you've mixed up.  Correct version of aclocal?

configure.in has this:


...so it's supposed to require autoconf 2.13, not 2.50+.

I know that auto* backwards compatibility is a pain in the butt, and
I'm more than glad the next version will no longer require those
ancient tools.

This is the exact problem I reported a few months ago at http://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=13416

The workaround given in the bug report is to temporarily rename the various autoconf files in /usr/bin. E.g.
# mv autoconf autoconf.original
# mv autoconf-2.13 autoconf

Without renaming the files as described above, autoconf --version will actually run /usr/lib/misc/ac-wrapper.sh, which will then execute autoconf-2.13 --version.
