    autoconf does not use perl.

    You are probably thinking of automake which indeed depends on
    perl.  automake has never been used in httpd.

    (autoconf contains supplemental tools (autoscan.pl) for
    upgrades between major autoconf releases.  These are not part
    of the normal toolchain.)

    libtool does not require perl.
