They're just tarballs.  They extract into the root directory, e.g. tar
jx -C / -f filename.tar.bz2.

Note that with the autotools there are two "flavors":

A) The MSYS-linked ones, which are to be used when *building* MSYS apps:

autoconf-2.61-MSYS-1.0.11.tar.bz2
automake-1.10-MSYS-1.0.11.tar.bz2
libtool1.5-1.5.25a-20070701-MSYS-1.0.11.tar.bz2
libiconv-1.11-MSYS-1.0.11.tar.bz2
gettext-0.16.1-MSYS-1.0.11.tar.bz2
gettext-devel-0.16.1-MSYS-1.0.11.tar.bz2

These are the analogs to what you'd find in the old msysDVLPR bundle. 
These install in /usr.

B) The "native" versions which install in /usr/local and are intended to
be used when *building* MinGW apps:

autoconf-4-1-bin.tar.bz2
autoconf2.1-2.13-3-bin.tar.bz2
autoconf2.5-2.61-1-bin.tar.bz2
automake-3-1-bin.tar.bz2
automake1.9-1.9.6-2-bin.tar.bz2
automake1.10-1.10-1-bin.tar.bz2
libtool1.5-1.5.25a-1-bin.tar.bz2
libtool1.5-1.5.25a-1-dll.tar.bz2
libiconv-1.11-1-bin.tar.bz2
libiconv-1.11-1-dll.tar.bz2
gettext-0.16.1-1-bin.tar.bz2
gettext-0.16.1-1-dll.tar.bz2

These come with wrapper scripts that do version detection, which allows
for multiple versions to be installed side by side (i.e. all of the
above work together.)
