Default autoconf: not found
I am unable to install new software from the source. I'm always having an error like 'autoconf: not found'.

I am on PCBSD 1.2. I have libtool in /usr/local/share/.

What should I do to fix it?

Try installing it first
Code:
cd /usr/ports/devel/autoconf261 && make install clean && rehash

I have no directory called 'autoconf261'. What do you mean? A typo?

This is what I have in my ports
Code:
devel/autoconf213         Automatically configure source code on many Un*x platforms (2.13)
devel/autoconf253         Automatically configure source code on many Un*x platforms (2.53)
devel/autoconf259         Automatically configure source code on many Un*x platforms (2.59)
devel/autoconf261         Automatically configure source code on many Un*x platforms (2.61)
devel/gnu-autoconf        Automatically configure source code on many Un*x platforms (GNU unmodified)
If you don't have the same then maybe you should update your ports tree.

Have you updated your ports directory?
-> Start -? Settings -> System Administration -> PC-BSD System

-> enter root password

-> tab "Tasks" -> Fetch Ports

This may take a few minutes.

When updated, follow Dracheflieger's intructions as root

Yes, I did. But it changes nothing :cry:.

I'm trying to install GnuCash. Here is the error I have:

Code:
checking ltdl.h usability... no
checking ltdl.h presence... no
checking for ltdl.h... no
configure: error: Cannot find ltdl.h -- libtool-devel (or libtool-ltdl-devel) not installed?
This is during 'configure'.

I have a similar error when I try to install QtCurve:

Code:
cd . && make -f admin/Makefile.common configure
autoconf: not found
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/home/Download/QtCurve-KDE3-0.46.2.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/home/Download/QtCurve-KDE3-0.46.2.
But it is when I try to make instead.

What should I do next?

Don't build GnuCash - why not just install it from ports? It is in /usr/ports/finance/gnucash. But I'm not sure why you don't have autoconfig261 either in your ports. What does 'ls -d /usr/ports/devel/auto*" give you?

It returns:

Code:
autoconf-2.61                       =   up-to-date with port
gnu-autoconf-2.59                   <   needs updating (port has 2.61)

OK. I taught that packages and ports were the same thing. I am new to BSD. So I made a 'make' in /usr/ports/finance/gnucash. It gives me these errors instead (the last errors because there are too many of them):

I have it now. I had a fresh install of PCBSD. Now, I have my ports.
