Let's separate the x-platform benefits of autoconf from the
where-and-how-do-I-install-this-query part of autoconf.

I can't imagine it'd be hard to have autoconf create a "configure" script
which mimics basically what Configure does today; read in a file containing
information about which modules to compile in, + some basic defines for
installation locations maybe & compilation parameters, and then does it's
x-platform dance and creates the appropriate makefiles.

Win32 I'm not worried about, since we use a different compilation system
