Purge WANT_{LIBTOOL,AUTOCONF,AUTOMAKE}_RUN

The versioned autotools are now strictly for building other ports in the tree.
Likewise, the gnu- autotools are for runtime dependencies for IDEs, and others,
where unmodified cross-platform capabilities are desired.

All that we see or seem, is but a dream, within a dream.

Take back maintainership.  I'll be scouring the PR database shortly,
if I miss any, or someone beats me to it, please feel free to reassign
appropriately.

At Kris's request, back out the MACHINE_ARCH spelling correction until
after 5.4-RELEASE.

Assist getting more ports working on AMD64 by obeying the
Ports Collection documentation and use 'ARCH' rather than 'MACHINE_ARCH'.

Relinquish maintainership.  I no longer have the time, energy,
or interest to look after these things any more.

To whomever picks these up, I salute you.  I'll reset the relevant
PRs to ports-bugs in a couple of weeks if no-one has taken over
maintainership.

Farewell, autotool hell.

Actually put in relevant symlinks to the versioned files in
${PREFIX}/bin to non-versioned files in ${PREFIX}/libexec/<autotool><ver>
so that the PATH magic in bsd.autotools.mk works correctly.

Set some DEPRECATED and EXPIRATION_DATE knobs to indicate overall intention
of the autotools project to remove all but the latest versions of
libtool, autoconf, and automake, by 31st December 2004.

Note that autoconf259 and automake18 aren't yet accessible through the
relevant USE_* knobs, but will be as soon as bsd.autotools.mk comes into
existence.
