ok. i will attach them. needs to run the executable (its first arg) and preserve
exit status. it uses expect. you could also use rsh/ssh/etc. for the 
degenerate case (host=target)

#! /bin/sh -f

the patch is against autoconf-2.13, and i think you will need to install
automake afterwards.

i still had to edit a few .c files to actually compile, but i think that
was mercury/libc specific, so i won't bother with them. good luck.
