By the way, MirBSD's stock autoconf is equally broken in the same
manner (and the valid pre-installed choices there are 2.13 and 2.61,
and lack of AUTOCONF_VERSION in the environment gives 0 exit status
without a valid version string).

Yep.  OpenBSD, too.

Thankfully, it was rather painless to install stock automake 1.11.1 and autoconf 2.67 onto the machine at a point in PATH earlier than the broken wrapper scripts, and once those were in place, I was able to bootstrap and test directly from autoconf.git. (Getting a working git installed was the harder proposition. Among other things, MirBSD's <sys/select.h> is broken if you define _POSIX_C_SOURCE as git does, because fd_set is defined only when you do not request POSIX compliance; and the git port in /usr/ports failed to build.)
