It is left as an exercise to the interested reader to decipher this absolutely unintelligible quote about "failed dependencies" along with a completely obfuscated specification which dependency is needed by the package to be installed.

~~shakes head in desparation...~~

I hope this helps.

You haven't "solved" the problem, just circumvented it. The dependencies the autoconf package relies on still are not there, but you have disabled the checks.

If you have a broken light bulb, you have to replace it. Declaring darkness to be the standard just doesn't cut it.

I hope this helps.
