autoconf.h  was created by make config at least until recently,
modversions.h doesn't exist on my system, so it must be part of very
recent kernels only. Anyway, autoconf.h does not contain information that
an application could sensibly use and modversions.h doesn't either
(especially since it didn't exist until recently). Both files have no
meaning in /usr/include/linux because /usr/include/linux does not in any
way correspond to the kernel being run and an application assuming this is
broken. They may be needed because they are #included in some other
headers so that their absence would cause compile errors but this can be
solved by simply touching dummy files. So my suggestion would be to ignore
these files or create dummy files with touch and see if it works.
