    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 ( for
    upgrades between major autoconf releases.  These are not part
    of the normal toolchain.)

    libtool does not require perl.
