You can install them locally in your own directory. Download the source of
automake and autoconf from ftp.gnu.org (or ftp.gromacs.org/developer) 
and compile them e.g. with

./configure --prefix=/home/feenstra/software
make install

And make sure you have /home/feenstra/software/bin first in your path.
