I'm not having a lot of success with it :(

I uninstalled 2.13 and tried to remove 2.64, but somehow it seems 2.59
is dependent on 2.64 (not sure how that works...) so I ended up with
both of them.

I renamed /usr/bin/autoconf to /usr/bin/autoconf2.64 and
made /usr/bin/autoconf a symlink to /usr/bin/autoconf2.59 but I got the
exact same problem.

I then did the same to /usr/bin/autoreconf* but I'm not so sure that
that will have the desired effect.

Any other suggestions?
