Did you install any of these ports of autoconf?

Remember the ports tree is a skeleton of potential applications you can 
install, they are not the actual installed apps themselves.. be sure and 
read the Ports/Packages section of the handbook :


What are you attempting to install that requires autoconf?

Currently, I am running autoconf-2.59_2 which seems to do the trick.
