What is autoreconf...I don't seem to have it.

It appears that the "autoreconf" is a command in Unix/FreeBSD.

However, while I was updating my drm drivers, an ./autogen.sh script
# ========================
#! /bin/sh

srcdir=`dirname $0`
test -z "$srcdir" && srcdir=.

cd $srcdir

autoreconf -v --install || exit 1
cd $ORIGDIR || exit $?

$srcdir/configure --enable-maintainer-mode "$@"

....and returns:

autoreconf: not found

What is autoreconf? It appears that it is a UNIX command, but my
FreeBSD 6.0 RELEASE has no idea what it is.
