Title: #171: Build system cleanup phase 2

Maybe this is why we do not understand each other. Autotools will orchestrate 
the complete build including configuration of Python (and other) components. 
This is what I meant by `Use autotools suite to orchestrate the build on the 
top-level` in the design document. If it is confusing I'm happy to improve it, 
just tell me what you want to see there.

This PR starts to use configure to create symlinks in ipaplatform Python module 
and more things are comming. If you look at 
http://www.freeipa.org/page/V4/Build_system_refactoring#Configuration you will 
see that configure is going contain switches for Python components as well as 
for Javascript components. I.e. there is nothing like C-only configure anymore.

I hope it clears the intent.
