"possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR" is breaking the pyconfigure method

On a fresh wheezy install with the normal mediagoblin dependencies as well as pkg-config and autoconf, I get the following error (and so do others on IRC):
cwebber@li313-33:~/mediagoblin$ ./bootstrap.sh && ./configure && make autoreconf: Entering directory `.' autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Gettext autoreconf: running: aclocal --force autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing autoreconf: configure.ac: not using Libtool autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf --force configure.ac:152: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow. See the Autoconf documentation. autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1
I'm not having this happen in Jessie, and IIRC I even had this working right in Wheezy. Some package must be missing? But without knowing what it is, we can't make this the official recommended way to set up MediaGoblin.
So, two steps:
- First of all, change the docs so that the pyconfigure route is marked as "experimental" for now.
- Figure out what's missing and document it!
