Autoconf 2.62 is only required because of AC_PATH_PROGS_FEATURE_CHECK
used in XCB_UTIL_M4_WITH_INCLUDE_PATH (xcb_util_m4_with_include_path.m4)
to check whether '-I' m4 options is supported.
That's being said, it's completely meaningless for xcb/util because m4
was only being used for (removed) atoms list, therefore I just removed
dependencies on m4 and gperf and downgrade autoconf version too in
However, xcb/util-wm uses XCB_UTIL_M4_WITH_INCLUDE_PATH, so it still
depends upon Autoconf 2.62. Feel free to submit a patch if you have any
problem with that ;).
