What has autoconf got to do with it ? If you try to compile a
package from git which lacks a configure script but provides
configure.ac, or sometimes if you patch the package, you need to
run autoconf - with the correct switches and, for some packages or
switches, you will need gtk-doc.
But for a normal release just use configure.
