Mea culpa, somehow the deb-src line for main had gone away.

I get:

dh_testdir
# Add here commands to compile the package.
autoconf -l autoconf autoconf/configure.in >configure
autoconf/configure.in:325: warning: AC_TRY_RUN called without default to allow cross compiling
autoconf/configure.in:328: warning: AC_TRY_RUN called without default to allow cross compiling
autoconf/configure.in:591: AC_TRY_COMPILE was called before AC_ISC_POSIX
autoconf/configure.in:591: AC_TRY_RUN was called before AC_ISC_POSIX

So works fine.

If I don't have autoconf installed and have . at the beginning of PATH,
then I just get the message:

/bin/sh: autoconf: command not found

What shell do you use for /bin/sh ? Probably not bash...
