The `$required' stuff still needs some work before it can
replace the $needs_* variables.

Setting `required=autoconf' is a bug because this will check for
`autoconf' indepenently of the user setting of $AUTOCONF.
Setting `required=$AUTOCONF' does not work either because the
default value for $AUTOCONF is set later.

Anyway, if we test for Autoconf in, then we can
remove all $needs_autoconf from the test-suite.  That's even
