I should have been more clear, I got the same error message.

I'll buy that, but I have a pretty vanilla installation of NetBSD 1.6.2
and other packages have autoconf'd just fine. tor autoconf's
fine... Have tor current taken things a new direction that just clashes?

I'm a little better than the average code monkey, but not deeply
experienced with managing configuration and build across platforms.
I grock, C, perl and shell scripts pretty good, but any pointers or
suggestions of things to try would be appreciated.

For instance, what version of autoconf do I need? I've got 2.59...

Again, any help appreciated.
