I wouldn't spend so much time on a problem that could be a user problem
without asking people.  That causes frustration.  Next time consider
asking earlier.

If I do the above sequence with git master of Autoconf, then
  cd Src/Modules

will provoke an error as you say, because Src/Modules/Makefile does not
exist.  However, if I do the same with Autoconf 2.61a, the exact same
thing happens.

What you need to do is run
  cd Src

(or just "make prep" should suffice) beforehand, because the Makefile in
Src will cause the generation of the Makefile in Src/Modules.

Hope that helps.
