I think that's a good idea going forward and we should certainly do it
for 4.0.0, but doesn't absolve us from maintaining an autoconf build
for the fileserver components in 4.0.0 for reasons previously discussed.

Let's use it as a stepping stone for getting to one build system
eventually (which I also would like to do). It's just not doable
right now (IMHO).
