I think you're talking about the CVS snapshot tarball, as the distribution
tarball does have a configure.

autoconf 2.14 is not an official release. I set up some info on:


I also listed the versions of autoconf and automake that I'm using currently
to compile it without problems.

It would be nice if we can understand why this problem comes coming back. I 
it may be more an installation problem.

My autoconf, automake, and libtool come from the RPM and DEB distribution
