If I remove the build dependency and install autoconf without help2man, I get this during the build (main.log attached)…

    :info:build Updating man page autoreconf.1
    :info:build PATH="../tests:../build-aux:$PATH"; \
    :info:build 	export PATH; \
    :info:build 	/bin/sh /opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_larryv_Projects_MacPorts_trunk_dports_devel_autoconf/autoconf/work/autoconf-2.69/build-aux/missing --run help2man \
    :info:build 	    --include=autoreconf.x \
    :info:build 	    --include=./common.x \
    :info:build 	    --source='GNU Autoconf 2.69' \
    :info:build 	    --output=autoreconf.1.t `echo 'autoreconf' | sed 's,.*/,,'`
    :info:build /opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_larryv_Projects_MacPorts_trunk_dports_devel_autoconf/autoconf/work/autoconf-2.69/build-aux/missing: line 51: help2man: command not found
    :info:build WARNING: 'help2man' is missing on your system.  You should only need it if
    :info:build 	 you modified a dependency of a manual page.  You may need the
    :info:build 	 Help2man package in order for those modifications to take
    :info:build 	 effect.  You can get Help2man from any GNU archive site.

…and this afterwards…

    % port contents autoconf | grep man
    % gunzip -c /opt/local/share/man/man1/autoreconf.1.gz
    .ab help2man is required to generate this page
