It appears that the configure.ac is setup to where
it needs macros only defined in 2.60 or later.  I tried
to edit the file to allow for 2.59, but got errors:

configure.ac:764: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_STRUCT_DIRENT_D_TYPE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

Macro listed was added in autoconf 2.60.

So it looks like 2.60 (or 2.61) is required and docs/README.developers
needs updating.
