Hmm.  You could download
and then

  bzip2 -dc autoconf-2.61.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
  cd autoconf-2.61
  make install

If you want it installed below some other prefix than /usr/local, then
you should tell it configure with the "--prefix /some/where" argument.

But if your system is a distribution (e.g., some GNU/Linux, or BSD, or
Cygwin or MinGW or so), or has some other means of source or binary
packaging, you should just look into installing an updated Autoconf

Hope that helps.
