I'm trying to add a new package to pkgsrc-wip, and it behave pretty  
Please consider the following Makefile lines:

DISTNAME=       tftp-hpa-0.45
EXTRACT_SUFX=   .tar.bz2

USE_TOOLS+=     autoheader

when making it in the pkgsrc framework  I end up like this:

===> Building for tftp-hpa-0.45
rm -f aconfig.h
WARNING: `autoheader' is missing on your system.  You should only  
need it if
          you modified `acconfig.h' or `'.  You might want
          to install the `Autoconf' and `GNU m4' packages.  Grab them
          from any GNU archive site.
if test -x config.status; then  ./config.status --recheck && ./ 
config.status ;  else  ./configure ;  fi
config.status: creating MCONFIG
config.status: creating aconfig.h
config.status: error: cannot find input file:
*** Error code 1


why is autoheader not found? It is true that it is not installed, but  
shouldn't the pkgsrc framework do so automatically?
