I tried building Bison with Autoconf 2.57 and it didn't work: it output
"autom4te: unknown language: Autoconf-without-aclocal-m4".  I don't
recall what this means, but rather than dive into it I simply installed
this patch.

        * (AC_PREREQ): Bump to 2.58, since 2.57 doesn't work
        (it fails with a Autoconf-without-aclocal-m4 diagnostic).
