Is the autoconf 2.61 (that you have built and installed previously)
found early in $PATH, earlier than any other installed Autoconf version?
Also, are all programs of the Autoconf package found the same way, esp.

autom4te-2.5x looks like a wrapper script from some distribution that
also strives to still support 2.13.  Which distribution?  I think if
$PATH lists the new version first, your problems should vanish.

Hope that helps.
