There's a comment buried in one of the build files: a release tarball
with a configure script in it does not require Autoconf to build the
source, whereas the same tarball with CMake files in it does require
CMake to build the source.

As it turns out, there is another unused macro (AC_LBL_HAVE_RUN_PATH),
tcpslice became the first to lose this luggage.
