Looks like your path has gotten screwed up somehow. Select "4" (start shell) and do the usual unixy things like "which autoconf" and
"echo $PATH". Bootstrap builds and installs an autoconf into prefix (~/gtk/bin), and that's the one that you want to find.

If that all looks right, read the file ~/gtk/src/automake-1.7.9/config.log and see if there's more information there.
