[Spread-users] [PATCH] autoconf build missing aclocal.m4

Part of Theo's original patch [1] to change the build system to autoconf-based 
is missing from CVS!  Without it, I get errors like the following when trying to 
generate a configure script (on a RedHat 9 Linux box):

dlr at despot:daemon$ autoconf
configure.in:81: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PTHREAD_FREEBSD
       If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
       See the Autoconf documentation.

Attached is it as a properly indented autoconf defun which should be commited to 
CVS as spread/daemon/aclocal.m4.  Though the same result can be achieved by 
inlining this defun into configure.in, this local macros file appears to be 
picked up automatically by autoconf, and seems to be the more idiomatic way of 
doing things.
