  Modified files:
  Install the new version of with support for the
  USE_AUTOTOOLS stanza.  Full backwards compatibility with the current
  USE/WANT variables has been maintained via a number of shims which
  are set to expire on January 1st, 2006.
  Please do *not* start using USE_AUTOTOOLS in port Makefiles until
  after 6.0-RELEASE has gone out the door.  Once that has happened,
  I will implement a tree-wide conversion process before 5.5-RELEASE,
  at which points ports will be free to use the new mechanisms.
  This change has been extensively locally tested with various large
  consumers of autotools building with no ill-effects notice.  However,
  there may well be edge cases that need to be taken care of.  After
  discussion with various members of portmgr, it was agreed that this
  commit could go ahead without an -exp run, but that does not, in
  my mind, constitute full approval.  The responsibility for any breakages
  caused by this commit are mine, and mine alone.  Please do file PRs,
  or mail me directly, if breakage is noticed, and I will endeavor to
  fix immediately.
