You have to install automake and autoconf. They are somewhere in the 
/usr/ports directory (probably under devel, but I am not at a FreeBSD 
machine now so I can't check). Once you are in the (automake | autoconf) 
directory you run "make all install clean", go grab a cup of <insert 
favorite drink here>, relax and wait until you get your prompt back.
