Spatial autocorrelation of what?

  sampled continuous surfaces
  lattice data
  aggregate data on irregularly-shaped units such as counties
  point patterns

and what do you want to do with it?

  test for it
  model its correlation structure
  account for it in a regression

Perhaps 'spdep' is the most useful for the most probable interpretation of 
your question.
