For the number of OSs that we need to handle, it's easy to either
fold the OS-guessing routine into Configure or, better yet, create
a Configure.guess routine. After all, it's simply a large case-switch
around the return values of uname.

For now, I think having the person at least need to edit Configure to
select their OS is minimal stuff.
