This is done now. One problem down.  :)

I was using automake 1.4 standard, so I upgraded to 1.4p5; still no
--force option (although there is a --no-force option in both of these
versions). Perhaps --force is the default, and not needed?  (I hope?) I've
removed --force from bootstrap's call to automake for now.

The original Makefile is still there, so users can still build from that
until we get autoconf up and working smoothly (which it appears to be now,
so the original Makefile will be going away soon).

Taken care of. The stuff in CVS seems to be pretty workable, now.

According to:

AC_FUNC_MALLOC doesn't appear until autoconf-2.52, so I've commented it
out of for now. Everything else seems to be working pretty

Also, the installation is putting SDL_sound.h into (for example)
/usr/local/include/, when in fact it should be in /usr/local/include/SDL/

Granted, the current Makefile does that, too, but it should be changed.
