This is in the interest of keeping the in-tree copy of autoconf at a minimum
level. It is not built by default, and will be used to generate exactly one
file by toolchain maintainers: src/tools/compat/configure.
If we feel at some point in the future that this copy of autoconf will have
an expanded role (and I hope not, actually), the .texi files can be re-added
