Summary: A GNU tool for automatically configuring source code.
GNU's Autoconf is a tool for configuring source code and Makefiles.
Using Autoconf, programmers can create portable and configurable
packages, since the person building the package is allowed to
specify various configuration options.

You should install Autoconf if you are developing software and you'd
like to use it to create shell scripts which will configure your
source code packages. If you are installing Autoconf, you will also
need to install the GNU m4 package.

Note that the Autoconf package is not required for the end user who
may be configuring software with an Autoconf-generated script;
Autoconf is only required for the generation of the scripts, not
their use.

  - Fix up interoperability with glibc 2.2 and gcc 2.96:
    AC_TRY_RUN_NATIVE in C++ mode added a prototype for exit() to
    the test code without throwing an exception, causing a conflict
