I'm inclined to do the above. I've prepared the modified tarball (with
configure from the current master branch). Tests indicate that it is working
as expected. The key advantage I see for this is that users that just
download and install AmberTools12 once stand a better chance of getting all
the patches applied.

People that think this is a bad idea, or who have a better idea (and maybe we
haven't thought of everything) should speak up now.

Note that we also have to encourage users to re-run from time
to time in order to update their codes.
