Let me expand on that: It would be really helpful if you could share with us:

- a _verbatim transcript_ of your shell session when you tried to install
  Autoconf and/or Automake using the system perl, showing all steps up to
  and including where it went wrong, in enough detail that we can try the
  same thing for ourselves

- all config.log files generated during that shell session

- the _complete and unedited_ output of `perl -V` where perl is the system

- specifics of which version of MacOS you are using (the text shown in the
  apple menu "about this mac" window should be sufficient)
