What is autoconfig?  I'm assuming you meant autoconf.

This is a FAQ:

Correct - autoconf requires installed m4.

Not true.  m4.git requires installed autoconf for development.  But
m4.tar.* does NOT require autoconf for the purposes of installing m4.

So, install m4 first, then install autoconf, then you can develop either
