autoconf 2.61

$ cd samba/source3
$ autoconf
/usr/bin/ cannot open `pkg.m4': No such file or directory

autoconf possibly needs some environment variables or arguments?

the missing file exists in the samba tree ../m4/pkg.m4

I tried `autoconf -B ../m4` but that doesn't work either (different error)
