> Deprecate the automake build system in favour of the cmake build system. The cmake system
has been in use for several years now, and is more portable (supports windows). Having two
redundant systems is a source of confusion and errors. 
> - Update docs (INSTALL, README, release notes etc.) to use cmake
> - The configure script will fail by default with a deprecation message.
> - Users can still use automake by doing "configure --use-deprecated=yes"
> We will keep both systems working for this release, and remove the automake system in
a subsequent release. This gives us at least one release cycle with both systems available
so we can fix any bugs/deficiencies found in the cmake system as users switch from automake.
