I did manage to get this resolved. Although 'which autoconf' worked in a normal 
shell window, it did not work in emacs shell. I had set both the PATH 
environment variable and the exec-path variable in emacs, but somehow, emacs 
shell was using something else. Anyone know where that path comes from? 

Anyway, I wound up creating a symlink to autoconf from /usr/sbin, which was on 
the emacs shell path, and that worked. 

I could have installed it manually, I suppose, but el-get really makes it easy 
(usually) to install and manage different packages.
