Litespeed PHP Compile Error: Cannot find autoconf

Once I finally made it past the PHP build process the Litespeed Admin Console Detailed Log complained of not being able to find autoconf. This one is fairly obvious but wanted to note just in case someone is not familiar with the autoconf package. Again since this is a new server with a minimal install the autoconf package had not been installed. Below are details about the error from the Litespeed Detailed Log and how to install autoconf via yum.

Below is a small snip from the Litespeed Detailed Log viewed from the Litespeed Admin Console.

Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation and the
$PHP_AUTOCONF environment variable. Then rerun the script.
