The first thing that's weird is that building from a tarball shouldn't
cause autoconf to be run at all.  Did your system somehow mess up time
stamps when extracting the package?

Then, the error comes from a semantic change of the (formerly
undocumented) m4_copy macro in Autoconf 2.64.  If you can't get the time
stamps fixed, then replacing all instances of m4_copy with m4_copy_force
in said macro file should fix this error for Autoconf 2.64.  (A fix
portable to older Autoconf versions as well would be to prepend a
m4_copy([MACRO]) with m4_undefine([MACRO])

Hope that helps.
