I have also fallen for this and been the Bad Man to break the OS/2 build 
by simply using the default autoconf installed on my debian box!  The 
solution is just to install autoconf 2.59 (eg: from tarball), use that to 
generate ./configure, test and check in the result.

There used to be a note about correct autoconf versions on the SANE 
website although a quick search just now failed to find it.
