Check for existence of automake, autoconf in bootstrap.sh
|Reported by:||ayleph||Owned by:|

If someone executes
autoconf installed, the system will print warnings about the files not being found then proceed to the git submodule commands whose output floods the terminal and may prevent the user from seeing the previous error output. Then the user is confused why there is no
configure. I think we should update
bootstrap.sh to check for the presence of
which commands and terminate the script with an error message if one isn't found, rather than continuing wit git submodule actions.

Good idea. I put "set -e" in the script. It should now fail if any of the commands in the script fail.
