Re: Autoconf Error

First, have a look which autoconf you're really running, with
$ which autoconf
$ type -a autoconf
I'll bet you find an old autoconf, probably in /usr/bin.
If that is the case, you have an old autoconf installation.

You can either modify your PATH so the new one is found before the old one 
(but that might break other stuff), uninstall the old autoconf or install 
the new one over the old one.

Have fun!
