I created in a build directory which was an immediate subdirectory
of src. i.e.,
mkdir BUILD-Solaris26
cd BUILD-Solaris26
../configure --options --options ...
gmake came to a directory in which it deemed it necessary to try
rebuilding the Makefile or configure, but the path to autoconf was
off by one "../".

gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/kerberos/BUILD-Solaris26/util'
making all in include...
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/kerberos/BUILD-Solaris26/include'
cd ../../include/./ && \
/bin/sh ../../include/../util/autoconf/autoconf \
--localdir=./.. \
../../include/../util/autoconf/autoconf: ../../include/../util/autoconf/autoconf: cannot open
gmake[1]: *** [../../include/.//configure] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/kerberos/BUILD-Solaris26/include'
gmake: *** [all-recurse] Error 1

The path to util/autoconf/autoconf would have been right only if
the build directory were at the same depth as the source directory.

Create build directory as above; touch a in the source
tree; gmake in build directory.

I'm too new at autoconf ...

Fixed long ago; $(AUTOCONF) is now determined relative to the directory
containing the, and doesn't reference $(srcdir). On the
trunk, installed autoconf program is used anyway.
