OK, thanks. I'm having another go. I've located an autoconf 2.59,
downloaded it, build it (had to do some "rebase" stuff to get that
working - no idea what it was about, but it seemed to have solved
the building problem of autoconf). It is testing itself now. There
were 4 tests that failed, but that was a known and irrelevant
problem, according to Google.
