Hardcoded autoconf-2.13 in client.mk breaks OS X builds. MacPorts has autoconf named 'autoconf213' for some reason :(
Comment on attachment 320087 [details] [diff] [review] Patch Awesome. To add to the summary, macports is how we recommend people set up their build environment. This removes an unnecessary step in getting a build going.

See also bug 434075, which is just a more general version of this bug. Ubuntu Linux has autoconf named "autoconf2.13", which breaks builds on that OS, too. I'd say that we'd like a more general solution than what this bug's current patch includes. But I could still see us using the patch posted here as a temporary workaround for Mac users, and then figuring out a more general solution on bug 434075.
Landed this on moz-central.
