Good catch - I think my brain or fingers are too used to Python's versioning scheme, rather than autoconf's.
Here's a revised set of commands, hopefully fixing that:
$ wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-2.61.tar.bz2
$ tar -jxf autoconf-2.61.tar.bz2
$ pushd autoconf-2.61
$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME/autoconf-2.61
$ make ; make install
$ PATH=~/autoconf-2.61/bin:$PATH autoreconf
