    I need Autoconf version 2.65 or higher

    I tried to update or install autoconf and I get this

    #yum install autoconf
    Package autoconf-2.63-5.1.el6.noarch already installed and latest version (really?)

    I tried to install manually the latest version but I am stuck on this (the name is configure.ac)
    git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/autoconf
    Briefly, the shell commands ‘./configure; make; make install’ should configure, build, and install this package. but...

    ./configure
    -bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
    root@server08 [~/tmpautoc/autoconf]# ./configure.ac
    ./configure.ac: line 19: syntax error near unexpected token `[2.62]'
    ./configure.ac: line 19: `AC_PREREQ([2.62])'
    root@server08 [~/tmpautoc/autoconf]# ./configure --prefix=/usr
    -bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
    root@server08 [~/tmpautoc/autoconf]# ./configure.ac --prefix=/usr
    ./configure.ac: line 19: syntax error near unexpected token `[2.62]'
    ./configure.ac: line 19: `AC_PREREQ([2.62])'

    Hello :)

    What OS is installed on your server? Also, have you considered trying to install it through an RPM instead of from source?

    Thank you.
