[torquedev] autogen on freebsd

How do I generate new autotools files on freebsd? The tools aren't installed as
'autoconf', 'aclocal', etc. They are 'autoconf259, 'aclocal19', etc. The
freebsd autoreconf259 fails because it can't find aclocal.

  Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/local/share/autoconf259/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 288.

If I run the tools by hand, it still fails with a libtool error. 
  configure.ac:1331: the top level
  configure.ac:218: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL

And libtoolize keeps telling me to run aclocal (no matter how many times I run aclocal).
