Dear developers,

The EMBOSS configuration in CVS is in a state of flux at the moment.
The major changes over the last 48 hours have been to make use
of autoheader and also to clear out any system-specific libtool

The upshot is that, from a fresh CVS checkout, the configuration should
just amount to:

     autoreconf -fi
     ./configure [options]

The above should mean that the configuration is relatively independent
of the version of libtool you have installed. Note, however, that
there is now a prerequisite for an autoconf version of at
least 2.59. The use of autoheader means that the compilation
lines are significantly shorter.

There will be further configuration changes over the next few
weeks but nothing quite so fundamental.
