The current version download via cvsup as of this evening is
broken due to a missing dependency on autoconf producing the
following error on a clean machine:

cd . && autoconf
autoconf: not found
gmake: *** [configure] Error 127
*** Error code 2

Installing autoconf-2.61 followed by make clean; make fixed
the error.

The makefile however does state so maybe something more
seriously wrong with the current port base?
USE=AUTOTOOLS=  autoconf:259
