gmp spec needs autoconf on s390x

Add autoconf in %prep
Description of problem:
During rpmbuild on s390x, ./configure fails with:
checking size of mp_limb_t... 8
configure: error: Oops, mp_limb_t is 64 bits, but the assembler code
in this configuration expects 32 bits.
You appear to have set $CFLAGS, perhaps you also need to tell GMP the
intended ABI, see "ABI and ISA" in the manual.
This is solved by adding 'autoconf' in spec in %prep (see attached spec file patch).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Running autoconf without aclocal and automake can break things.
You have to run "aclocal && autoconf && automake -i" or you can use
"autoreconf --install --force"
which calls all of them and then "libtool --force".
And it is more decent to do this in %build then in % prep, since the CPU requirements of these tools are much higher than for unpacking the tarball and applying the patches.
Fixed in gmp-4.2.4-2.
