      build: add autoconf to replace custom checks in tools/check · bfa8db13
      Ian Jackson authored
      Added autotools magic to replace custom check scripts. The previous
      checks have been ported to autoconf, and some additional ones have
      been added (plus the suggestions from running autoscan). Two files are
      created as a result from executing configure script, config/Tools.mk
      and config.h.
      conf/Tools.mk is included by tools/Rules.mk, and contains most of the
      options previously defined in .config, that can now be set passing
      parameters or defining environment variables when executing configure
      config.h is only used by libxl/xl to detect yajl_version.h.
      [ tools/config.sub and config.guess copied from
        autotools-dev 20100122.1 from Debian squeeze i386,
        which is GPLv2.
        tools/configure generated using the included ./autogen.sh
        which ran autoconf 2.67-2 from Debian squeeze i386.  autoconf
        is GPLv3+ but has a special exception for the autoconf output;
        this exception applies to us and exempts us from complying
        with GPLv3+ for configure, which is good as Xen is GPL2 only.
