i have pushed a new WIP branch with some minimal changes

configure.old is now configure.static. i've tried to move configure (the
autotools variant) to configure.gnu, but sanitychecks expect "configure"
within $srcdir. i don't have time to rewrite that, probably it's not
worth it...

the literals "bsim" and "spice3f" are now gone. and there is a
.gitignore stub.

i have moved m4 to .autotools/m4. i will keep trying to move more stuff
into .autotools. maybe, if i come across something.

what exactly is compile-time clutter? if you choose to build inside
another directory, any clutter will be seperated from the source code.
