I am looking for an LTO tape library. Do you have one to spare?

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.

This port is specifically designed for developers that want to create
cross-platform software distributions on FreeBSD.  This version of autoconf
should _NEVER_ be used with the FreeBSD ports system as a replacement for the
versioned copies of autoconf.

With the regular autotools ports now being able to be used not only
for ports building, but also cross-platform development, mark these
two as DEPRECATED, with a one-month expiration date.

Patches for the 3 ports that currently use these have been issued to
their maintainers.

- Set --mandir and --infodir in CONFIGURE_ARGS if the configure script
  supports them.  This is determined by running ``configure --help'' in
  do-configure target and set the shell variable _LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS
  which is then passed to CONFIGURE_ARGS.
- Remove --mandir and --infodir in ports' Makefile where applicable
  Few ports use REINPLACE_CMD to achieve the same effect, remove them too.
- Correct some manual pages location from PREFIX/man to MANPREFIX/man
- Define INFO_PATH where necessary
- Document that .info files are installed in a subdirectory relative to
  PREFIX/INFO_PATH and slightly change add-plist-info to use INFO_PATH and
  subdirectory detection.

Assume maintainership.

It's important to note here that these particular versions of autotools
will be left without FreeBSD-specific hacks, so that developers and IDEs
alike will be able to run in a pristine environment, ensuring
cross-platform capability.  The prefix of ${LOCALBASE}/gnu-autotools
will remain untouched, it's merely a case of ensuring that they are
kept up to date.

At Kris's request, back out the MACHINE_ARCH spelling correction until
after 5.4-RELEASE.

Assist getting more ports working on AMD64 by obeying the
Ports Collection documentation and use 'ARCH' rather than 'MACHINE_ARCH'.

These ports are strange in that they use a non-standard PREFIX.  Make sure to
clean up after them.

Add gnu-autoconf, an unhacked version of autoconf-2.59 aimed at developers
that need to create cross-platform software distributions.  This port installs
into ${LOCALBASE}/gnu-autotools, so developers that need to make use of this
version of autoconf can adjust their paths accordingly.
