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 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:

$ ./
Checking autoconf...
Checking automake...
I am going to run ./configure with no arguments - if you wish 
to pass any to it, please specify them on the ./ command line.
/usr/bin/m4: No such file or directory
automake: installing `./install-sh'
automake: installing `./mkinstalldirs'
automake: installing `./missing'
autoconf: No such file or directory
./ ./configure: No such file or directory

And here's the ls of my root logjam directory, before running

$ ls
AUTHORS       COPYING       images  po            TODO    CVS           INSTALL     README
ChangeLog  libhalfgnome  NEWS            README.win32  gen           logjam.1      pixmaps         src

And after:

$ ls
aclocal.m4    COPYING       install-sh      missing        README.win32
AUTHORS       CVS           libhalfgnome    mkinstalldirs  src  logjam.1        NEWS 
ChangeLog     gen   pixmaps        TODO   images     po  INSTALL     README

From the above output, I gather that I probably need, 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.
