Sorry. I lied.

Misread the question.

What is the indefinite integral of arccot(4x) ?

arccot is simply related to arctan:

arccot(x) = pi/2 - arctan(x)

You can integrate arctan using partial integration. You get x arctan(x) - integral of xdx/(x^2+1), the latter integrand contans in the denominater the derivative of the numerator (up to a factor 2), so you get a logarithmic function.
