Toolchain on Ubuntu 7.10

I've just done a clean install of Ubuntu 7.10 and am trying to follow the
instructions from the Toolchain wiki page.  When I try the command:

sudo apt-get install gcc g++ autoconf automake binutils libtools ...

I get this error message:

*Package autoconf is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Pacakge autoconf has no installation candidate*

Since this is a fresh install, I expect I may not have the right setup to
install all the developer goodies.  Can someone suggest a clean way to
resolve this issue?  I would be happy to update the wiki page with better
instructions once my issue is resolved.
