On FreeBSD the autoconf ports are installed into nonstandard
locations, because the autoconf developers assume that you'll only
ever want to have one version installed at a time.  That's an
incorrect assumption since they have broken backwards compatibility,
so a lot of older software can't be built with the latest version.

You'll have to jump through some hoops to point your software to the
autoconf files - take a look at what does to build ports
with a specified version.
