Convert to modern autotools (autoconf + automake + libtool)
The current build system doesn't use automake. It would be much easier to maintain the build system if we use full autotools capabilities.
Also reducing the number of Makefiles scattered in subdirectories into just few would help with dependency graph and parallel builds.
