databases/postgresql90-server build failure

Hello guys,

I'm building postgresql90-server with the current ports tree and the 
build fails for me early in the configure stage:

===>  Configuring for postgresql-server-9.0.1_2 error: Autoconf version 2..68 is required.
Untested combinations of 'autoconf' and PostgreSQL versions are not
recommended.  You can remove the check from '' but it is then
your responsibility whether the result works or not. the top level
autom4te-2.68: /usr/local/bin/gm4 failed with exit status: 1
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/postgresql90-server.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/postgresql90-server.

For some reason, the file in work/ directory contains:
m4_if(m4_defn([m4_PACKAGE_VERSION]), [2..68], [], [m4_fatal([Autoconf 
version 2..68 is required.

If I remove one obvious extra '.' from that line the build succeeds.
It seems to be related to ade@'s last revision 1.209 to Makefile but I 
have no clue about auto*. Just backing out the revision doesn't seem to 
help, is there a proper way to fix this?

Please keep me in cc: as I am not subscribed to ports at .

S pozdravom / Best regards
