The CMake build can now generate a tarball that can be built both with

the canonical way that Chicken is packaged up.

And now I hope it holds up to the scrutiny of others...

Very good, Brandon! A few comments:

- Dependency on automake 1.9.6 isn't so good. I removed the check
 for 1.9.6 and everything seems to work so far (using automake 1.8.3).
- csi.c should be distributed as well.
- autoconf support still will have to be maintained for the time being
 until CMake is more widely distributed and more mature[*].
- exec'ing fails on UNIX boxes, I changed the command
 to exec sh instead (passing as argument).

I have checked in some changes, perhaps you can check whether
I broke something regarding the cmake stuff.

Excellent work, BTW. This is great.


[*] CMake does funny things on linux, as I already reported to you
(I have to invoke "make" twice. I'm using the CVS version of CMake
and will try once more with the latest changes).
