Right, I'd better fix that. The current information about how to
configure and build sources from the repository can be found at
http://wget.addictivecode.org/RepositoryAccess too (and it's currently
up-to-date there).

autoreconf is how I had been planning we should set up the configure
script and its prerequisites; however, I had been thinking I should
reinstate autogen.sh, as autoreconf appears to be rather inflexible, and
it may be that we want to do it another way at some point in the future.
Rather than reinstate autogen.sh in the future and update all the
documentation--again--I've gone ahead and put an autogen.sh back in,
which just does "exec autoreconf" for now.

It's not necessary to build; and in fact it includes Makefile. It comes
from gnulib, and offers maintainer support rules that I find useful.
