1) for a quick and dirty solution, I would manually build/install autoconf
>=2.68 on the side (./configure --prefix=/opt/autoconf/2.68) , modify the
builder default PATH to have the new autoconf first, and rebuid your emacs

2) also rebuild autoconf from fc19, replace the CentOS version during the rebuild stage, revert to the stock autoconf.

either way, you will end up maintaining emacs24 for the next years :)
