It seems like autoconf is working just fine except for the duplicated
directory listings, you are probably fine installing it while you wait for
an answer from the MacOS people.

Are you actually developing Ensembl?  If so, then yes, development often
comes with a lot of prerequisites.  If not, consider using Ensembl
tarballs that don't require you to rerun autoconf/automake, or else report
a bug to the Ensembl developers (after all, the point of the autotools is
to allow packages to create tarballs that do NOT need the autotools).
