[tex-live] time to compile

- the old nightmare with autoconf version. Could someone please remind me
how to get around it?
/bin/sh /usr/local/tex/TeX/utils/texinfo/missing --run automake-1.6 --gnu Makefile
cd . && /bin/sh /usr/local/tex/TeX/utils/texinfo/missing --run autoconf
configure.ac:12: error: Autoconf version 2.54 or higher is required
This is a true statement, Texinfo does need autoconf 2.54 or higher.
The question is, why is autoconf getting rerun at all. All I can
surmise is the file timestamps are wrong in perforce. It never happens
for me when I just unpack the original texinfo distribution and say
configure && make.
I also don't understand why this happens with texinfo and not with
anything else. I am not doing anything special in the texinfo distribution.
