Subject: [PATCH] Drastically simplify autoconf detection

Autoconf 2.59 is very old, so just use ordinary autoconf, with an
environment variable override to be nice to people with a non-standard

Now that we're running under `set -e`, the script will exit with an
error if automake fails, so we don't need any `|| exit 1` here.
