Hi all -

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that there will be two
changes to the build system that should have minimal impact on
everyone, but are worth noting:

   1) If you are using Autoconf 2.60 or later, you *MUST* be using
      Automake 1.10 or later. Most people are still using AC 2.59,
      so this should have zero impact on the group.

   2) We will now be checking to make sure that the C++, F77, F90,
      and ObjC compilers can link against the C compiler. This
      should clean up some of the amorphous errors people have been
      getting when they do something like: 'CFLAGS=-m32 CXXFLAGS=-m64',
      usually by not specifying one of the two...
