[neomutt-devel] Autosetup build system

Hi everyone,

This is a last call for testing for @gahr's new autosetup-based build.
It's in the [devel/autosetup] branch.

It's our plan to replace autoCONF with autoSETUP, soon.
For the next few releases, BOTH systems will be in place in parallel.

The configure options for autoSETUP are slightly different.
There's no longer a distinction between --enable-X and --with-X

Here's a conversion chart:

Quick guide:

autoCONF (old system)
    autoreconf -i
    ./configure [OPTIONS]

autoSETUP (new system)
    ./configure.autosetup [OPTIONS]

Please note:  The latest builds from git generate 'neomutt'
              and install some things to slightly different locations

If you have any questions, or spot any problems, please let us know.

    @flatcap and @gahr
