Program prefix shouldn't be applied to autopoint

Subject says it all, really. Things like autoreconf expect to find
"autopoint", and yet prefixing programs with a `g' is a good idea
on many systems, as the README says.

Maybe there are other programs that shouldn't get the prefix.

An automatic exception probably isn't a good idea though. with-program-prefix
wouldn't be working as advertised if that was done. Perhaps a note in
the README recommending that what might now be "gautopoint" should be
renamed or linked to "autopoint"?
