You should have used autoconf2.13 instead of autoconf. Mozilla dev page says

    The configure script is a bash shell script; the file is generated from a
    file called configure.in which is written with M4 and processed using
    Autoconf 2.13 to create the final script. Note: Mozilla uses an old version
    of autoconf, because modern versions removed features that are necessary for
    our build system.

I haven't tried building Iceweasel myself yet, but I assume it doesn't have this problem. So that means for gNewSense that we'll have to continue the path suggested in [1] and apply IceCat patches to Iceweasel instead of using IceCat straight.

Does Mozilla plan to work with newer versions of autotools? Requiring a version that old seems a bit silly to me. Does Mozilla have a bug report about this?

I'm seeing less benefit to gNewSense now to try and reproduce your bugs, but I might try again when I have some more time.
