I did a pkg_deinstall on bothautoconf-2.13.000227_5 and  autoconf-2.53_1.
I then did 
# cd /usr/ports/devel/autoconf && make all install clean distclean
and that reinstalled 2.53
Does it make a difference whether I do pkg_deinstall or make deinstall?

Here is what you asked for:
# autoconf -V
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.53

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
