The Debian project regards the full documentation for autoconf to be non free, so it is not included in Debian. Nevertheless, the non free distribution that
accompanies Debian includes the manual in its autoconf doc package. Otherwise, you may be able to access the Autoconf manual online. /usr/share/doc/auto
conf/autoconf.html for more information.
