Autoconf is an extensible package of M4 macros that produce shell scripts to automatically configure software source code packages. These scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like systems without manual user intervention. Autoconf creates a configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the operating system features that the package can use, in the form of M4 macro calls.
Autoconf is available both in /usr/bin (v2.63) and as a module. The module versions come with the latest libtool v2.4 and M4 processor.
