Could be that I compare somewhat dissimilar situations here.
I'm just a simple end-user that ought to build OOo on the Mac and
took care that the OS X build instructions weren't totally out of
date, which over the past year or so, sort of happened but it was
due to a lack of time on my site and now I'm trying to catch up
again. In no ways I'm a coder.
For OOo I installed the then most recent XCode, which includes a
compiler, developer tools for GUI and various other related stuff,
installed Mecury (or was it svn) and cache, both not coming with
Mac OS X nor XCode, did a hg checkout of the most current milestone
OOO320_m16, ran a ./configure and no complaints about missing a
library or binary occurred. So yes no autoconf was needed.
If I'm not wrong OS X comes with autoconf, which imo should be used
unless it's like in the case of gnu-cp vs cp were (mac/bsd-)cp uses
the -R in a different manner to the -r in gnu-cp.
