The Debian project regards the full documentation for autoconf to be non-free, so it is not included in Debian. Nevertheless, the non-free distribution that accompanies Debian includes the manual in its autoconf-doc package. Otherwise, you may be able to access the Autoconf manual online. /usr/share/doc/autoconf/autoconf.html for more information.
