new autoconf/libtool

Hey all,

I've been working with Mo's patch and trying to get this stuff to work. I've
got it, but I had to work around a libtool bug to do so.

There were also quite a few changes over Mo's patch that I made (his patch
did not reference the .la files directly, but libtool 1.4 was meant to do
exactly that; thus no need for -L -l pairs).

The bug is related to libtool's desire to relink libraries at install time.
It does this to adjust the --rpath stuff (when you compile it, --rpath
points into the build dir; at install time, it is relinked to toss that).
When it does the relink, it improperly does a "cd" which then screws up the
following commands. My patch was to rewrite the .la files to include proper
relink commands. Mebbe if I was smarter, we could patch the generated
"libtool" script.

Anyways... since I feel this is a bit tweaky, I wanted to post before
committing. Especially if anybody knows some fixes for the relink problem.

I'm using libtool 1.4.2 and autoconf 2.52
