I have to check it out. The manual that comes with autoconf is quite nice.
It is the same manual that's available as info-files, but if you get the
source version of autoconf you also get texinfo files from which you can
get PostScript. It's a lot nicer to read nicely formatted and printed
documentation for something that's really unfamiliar. I personally use the
info-files nowadays quite frequently, but only for looking up the syntax
for some weird macro.

I think the manual can also be found online at http://www.gnu.org/.
