macOS does not come with any version of autoconf (or automake), so you have
always needed to build it yourself anyway in order to build LibreOffice,
no? (Installing some pre-built one from some 3rd-party packaging thing,
homebrew etc, has not been recommended). So just make sure that you build
and install a new enough version? I seem to have 2.69, and it is from 2015,
so version 2.68 isn't exactly brand new.

(How LODE handles it I have no idea. Does it include autoconf, and is that
what is too old?)
