You should not need autoconf *at all*.
I think you are probably running on a git checkout of something.

Try downloading 0.8.5 from , unzipping into a clean
directory and building there.

     That does allow ./configure to run without error but when I make the
     software I get this:

     You have another version of autoconf.  It may work, but is not
     guaranteed to.
     If you have problems, you may need to regenerate the build system entirely.
     To do so, use the procedure documented by the package, typically
     'autoreconf'. error: Autoconf version 2.65 or higher is required

     WARNING: 'autoheader' is probably too old.
              You should only need it if you modified 'acconfig.h' or

              The 'autoheader' program is part of the GNU Autoconf package:
              It also requires GNU m4 and Perl in order to run:

     It looks like it cannot find autoconf268 but even if it did, the warning
     says 2.69 is needed...
