Please ignore this patch series.  Cherry picking back to master from
a long divergent branch that has fairly intrusive reorganisation to
move Libtool to use gnulib doesn't work as well as I'd hoped.

I'll repost the entire series for consideration after the release.

On the original branch, each one had to pass `make distcheck' before

For this series, on my development machine only, since the changees are
not machine specific.

git: no.
Autoconf, Automake: minimum supported versions and latest stable versions.

For this series, moving towards gnulib is the majority of the rationale,
and standardization of our use of scripts is the rest.

I assume you are asking why I rewrote the bootstrap script here - that was
because the existing script is out on a limb by itself, and I thought it
sensible to reuse the format and code from our other scripts.

Sorry, ./commit and ./libltdl/config/mailnotify run amok.  I haven't
really updated the latter to work properly with git.
