I would really recommend doing
autoconf (empty package) Depends autoconf-2.13
And this works the best.
When the transition is over (read: noone depends on autoconf)
You can make autoconf to
Replace, Conflict, and Provides autoconf-2.50.
This is IMO the best way to go, if you do not insist on
everyone moving over to 2.50 immediately.
