It is called './configure'.

If you are running 'make' and it is running then that implies to me
that it is finding the Makefile.  If you are running GNU make then it
will use GNUmakefile which should print instructions to run configure.
If the rules in that Makefile are not finding a then
something is really wrong there because Makefile is not checked into
cvs while is checked in.

I will guess that something appears to be wrong with the way you did a
cvs checkout of the autoconf sources.  How did you get them?  The
following page documents how to get the sources by CVS.

The following command is documented there.
  CVS_RSH=ssh cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/autoconf co autoconf

I just verified this process and it worked for me.
