Description

It seems that distros have installed autoconf-2.13 for firefox for many years - we managed to get away without it. But now firefox-47 has introduced configure.py (initially, it is used in js/src - no idea if it replaces all of configure yet). And that dies if autoconf-2.13 is not found.

Trying to use an environment variable to persuade it to use current autoconf fails:

autoconf: error: invalid option `--localdir=/scratch/ken/firefox-47.0/js/src'

At the moment, it fails many tests (pre-install), and it installs an old copy of standards.info which would overwrite the current version - I'm looking at those issues.
