Well sorry for now -  the current state of upstream  configure.in file
does require newer version of autotools & autoconf & and few
other devel files installed.

So do not run autoconf and use already generated one - available
in both - git repo &  released tar ball.

Once there will be enough time we may possibly fix it and make
it more backward compatible. Until that - use exiting generated
configure script.
