The error 22's indicate that bash/sh/ash is
trying to shellexec a file with \r\n on a binary mount filesystem (or similar)
do you have text mounts and the setup exec is forcing them to
binary? or is the installer not using binmode pipes for tar?
or is tar output being piped via cmd.exe? cmd.exe will always
use text mode pipes ;-)
is the extraction of autoconf.tar to an unmounted/text mounted filesystem
and the install to a binary mounted one?
