The ultimate goal is to get rid of the automake/autoconf dependencies

Ideally the emil library will be built with a custom Makefile, much like
libpbsa and libmdgx. This should be a goal of the Amber meeting, I think.

This shouldn't be necessary. A "git clean -fxd" followed by a "git
checkout ." will reset the git repository to a 'fresh' checkout. If that
helps at all...
