#1185: Automate auto-generating code

 There should be an automated way for re-generating code, i.e. running
 Kranc and autoconf.

 Often, projects have a script "autogen.sh" that does so. This can't be a
 makefile, since this has to generate configure, which needs to run to
 generate the Makefile.

 In our case, autogen.sh would (unconditionally) run autoconf to generate
 configure, and would check each thorn for certain scripts/makefiles that
 then have the opportunity to re-generate code
 (if needed). For example, we could check for files "autogen.sh" in each
 thorn's main directory. E.g. McLachlan would contain the command "cd m;
 make" there.
