Problems building from CVS

I was a bit reluctant to post this here, lest I look like I don't know what I'm doing, but, well, I don't know what I'm doing. I've beaten my head against this wall for quite a while, and I come here only as a last resort.

I'm attempting to build LogJam from the latest CVS, and it's failing in the autogen.sh stage. I don't know if I'm missing a program, or if CVS is missing a file; I would think the former. But I would really appreciate some help.

I was able to build from the source just fine before the 3.1 merge.

Here's the output that I'm getting:

And here's the ls of my root logjam directory, before running autogen.sh:

And after:

From the above output, I gather that I probably need configure.in, but I notice that it was removed from CVS at the time of the 3.1 merge.

If I'm doing something stupid, please let me know. Thanks.

UPDATE: Fixed. After upgrading autoconf to version 2.53, everything installed smoothly. Thanks very much, evan, for the quick and helpful response. LogJam 3.1 looks very impressive.
