Building mc fails with the following messages:

gmake[3]: Entering directory `/usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/mc/work/mc-4.5.51/vfs/samba'
cd . && autoheader
autoheader: not found

The build will also work with autoheader-2.13 from autoconf213. It just has to be symlinked as autoheader.

Additionally I found that autoconf213 has a confict entry regarding autoconf. This is missing in autoconf.
