This requirement should be fixed/downgraded!

I manually edited my makefiles to allow both automake 1.7 and autoconf 
2.57, which are the latest versions supported under FreeBSD.

This allowed me to compile everything, so my brand new FreeBSD 5.2 box 
is now running off a fresh 'bk pull'.

Since FreeBSD is more or less _the_ canonical ntp platform, we should 
try to either keep the build environment compatible with it, or the bk 
repositories should be kept up to date with a nightly autoreconf run, 
similar to what's in a .tar dump.
