 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.
