Hi all,

while working a bit on the configure code I noticed that the error 
message when autoconf is missing prints the wrong path to autogen.sh. 
This tiny patch updates the error message:

+    echo "Please install autoconf and run 'bash 
$conf_script_dir/autogen.sh' to update the generated files."
      echo "Error: Cannot continue" 1>&2
      exit 1


- Tested locally by uninstalling autconf, updating a configure file and 
verifying that error message is correct
