I have prepared source and binary packages of the beta autoconf and
uploaded them to my personal website. should work as an apt
source line, and the packages should cleanly upgrade from autoconf in
unstable.  Please let me know if there are problems, it's been a long
time since I needed to use apt-ftparchive.

I believe that these packages would be suitable for experimental,
and/or as a basis for the eventual upload of 2.70 to unstable, but I
don't have the privileges to upload anything to the Debian archive.
I'm cc:ing the Debian maintainer of autoconf -- Ben, if you would like
to check and adopt my work, please feel free.
