You seem to have misplaced automake? Those two macros come from automake and
we've used them basically since the beginning of time.

Since 'autoconf' is not enough to make a full script from git, we provide
'buildconf' as the script to run to get everything setup to make configure and
friends work fine.

What happens if you run buildconf there?

I don't tink the procedure has changed since we introduced buildconf in
2001... The script most of us use to run automated testing of curl
runs that script itself.
