That's a weird one.  It looks to me like you ran the equivalent of
"./configure --prefix=`pwd`", that is, you tried to install the
program on top of itself.  That's a no-no.  Instead, please try this,
from scratch:

cd $HOME
mkdir src
cd src
wget ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-2.59.tar.gz
gunzip <autoconf-2.59.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd autoconf-2.59
sh configure --prefix=$HOME/prefix
make install

It is important that $HOME/prefix differs from $HOME/src.
