You don't actually need to install or run autoconf, though you can if
you want. Running autoconf is almost certainly what led to the problem
in the first place. The version of configure generated by your
autoconf has conflicted with the version in the Emacs repository, so
you have not been getting updates.

If you do run autoconf, you will likely get these conflicts in future.
This is fine, so long as you watch out for it and deal with it.

You seem to have got your checkout into a rather messed up state.
Some sequence of Bazaar commands will fix it, but I do not really know
what they are. Hopefully someone else can help you.

One thing you can try is just plain `bzr revert'.
Be careful with this command if you have deliberately made any changes
to the Emacs sources and wish to keep them.

When it is all fixed, you should have no other configure.OTHER etc
junk files, and `bzr status' should not report any conflicts.
