While building /ftp/proftpd, pointyhat running 5.5-STABLE reported the 

configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating mod_wrap2.h
/usr/bin/sed -i.bak -e 's:/usr/local/share/examples/proftpd:/usr/local:' /work/a/ports/ftp/proftpd/work/proftpd-1.3.1rc2/config.h
/usr/bin/sed -i.bak -e 's: -lnsl::' /work/a/ports/ftp/proftpd/work/proftpd-1.3.1rc2/Make.rules
/usr/bin/sed -i.bak -e 's:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:'  -e 's:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:'  
===>  Building for proftpd-1.3.1.r2_1
cd . && autoconf
autoconf: not found
gmake: *** [configure] Error 127
*** Error code 2

I'm not quite sure how to deal with this. Should I add it as a BUILD_DEPENDS, 
or USE_AUTOTOOLS? This problem doesn't show up on any local boxes I've tested
