How can I install autotools in NixOs?

I want to install the autotools derivation in my NixOs, what is the package name of autotools?

The nix-env -iA nixos.autotools command doens’t work for me.

There are individual packages for automake, autoconf and autogen. I looked around for a combining derivation, but it doesn’t look like there is one.

Note that autotools is a build tool, so you should not install it on nixos, but use it with nix-shell instead: nix-shell -p autoreconfHook should provide you with a gcc and autotools.
