	New version of Mk/bsd.autotools.mk, implementing the
	USE_AUTOTOOLS functionality as described at:


	This has all the necessary backwards compatibility shims
	in place so that it is essentially a no-op, allowing a
	sweep of the ports tree to convert ports from old to new
	style autotools use at leisure.




	Replace ports/Mk/bsd.autotools.mk with that available from:


	and run a full ports tree build.  Local testing has involved
	creating an INDEX which matches up with the previous version
	(indicating that at least the dependencies are matching up),
	and a full build of x11/gnome2 (a heavy consumer of autotools)
	is currently in progress.

	I will follow up and assign the PR to portmgr@ for -exp build
	testing as soon as this stage has completed.
