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

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.

Fix for auto-creation of an auxiliary directory when using the base
version of perl in 4.x

Whilst the package list isn't affected, PORTREVISION has been bumped
to warn 4.x users -- those on 5.x don't necessarily have to update.

Say hello to autoconf 2.59 and automake 1.8(.3) after repo-copy.
It's likely to be a really bad idea to use these until they're hooked
into the new bsd.autotools.mk
