First cut at wireless utils autoconf [patch]

After some trouble with installing the wireless tools (mainly because I
hadn't RTFM), I spent a few hours on learning about autoconf.
The attached patch is provided for comment (in particular, will you accept a
./configure based system). I am not sure I properly understand what each of
the defines is meant to accomplish, but it works for me (with 2.4.9 kernel,
and glibc 2.2)
It could definately use some more testing (hence, sent to wireless mailing
list as well). If anyone finds problems, please send corrective patches. If
you can't resolve it, please hold off sending mailbombs until after 21 Jan
2002, because I am on the wrong side of Australian to my ADSL link, working
over a 28k8 modem at long-distance rates.
To apply, you need to have wireless tools 22, and apply the patch. Then run
autoconf to generate the configure script (would normally be run before
packaging, but I didn't want the patch to be so large). Then just run the
configure script and make. There is one configuration option that I have
added for selecting whether to use the private wireless.h - see ./configure
Ensure that it works with other kernels / libraries.
Fix up the installation stuff (this patch just tries to address the header /
Add better installation documentation.
Maybe switch to automake.
