the CVS version of automake contains code which ensures that automake
uses the same autoconf version which was (or will be) used to create

If you have a temporary build of Autoconf, and want to use it without
installing it, start "make check", and when it tries to create
"tests/testsuite" (or when the testsuite is fired), hit Ctrl-C
(perhaps several times).  Then you can use the tests/autoconf--a
wrapper which ensures that the just built autoconf is used
consistently.  So if you put $your_build_dir/tests in front of your
PATH before performing other experiments, things should work
