You did not answer my question.
Your are more than likely out of sync with your ports catalog.
Cvsup the ports-base and try again to install your port.

The way I understand it, the system comes with a particular version
autoconf but there are one or two other versions that exist in the
port tree
(as of 2/7/2004).
They can all be installed together because some ports will require
one version
or another. My problem is that when I try to build a port the system
considers the default version and doesn't take into account those
versions that I've installed.
So I'm thinking that there must be a way to specify which version of
or any other such port (ie automake) to use when building...
