It is standard practice in many open source projects that

- the source tarballs have already have autoconf etc. run on them so
  you can start with ./configure

- but from the CVS (or whatever) repositories, you have to run autoconf
  on the principle that files generated from other files in the project
  should not generally be under revision control
