The distro comes with a version of autoconf 2.59, and you can use the
alternatives package to make it your primary version. Also, the normal
autoconf installed by the distro is a wrapper script, which honors various
environment variables to forward to the desired autoconf version on a
per-package basis. So you don't have to build autoconf 2.59 from scratch
to build gcc.

setup.exe only pulls in runtime requirements. For build-time
requirements, you need to read the README for the additional packages that
you must install.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
