Comment (by chris at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I just uninstalled Autoconf from my system and have no problems building
 all of Chapter 5, including Bash. My guess is you saw some error and
 mistook it for meaning that Autoconf was missing, or it's possible that
 something else like bison was missing and installing Autoconf happened to
 provide the *real* needed dependency at the same time. Double-check the
 make error(s) and see whether it really is Autoconf that's the issue. If
 so, you'll need to provide more information, like the exact make output.
