GNU Coding Standards-compliant configure script & Makefile

According to the GNU Coding Standards, all GNU projects should have a configure script and a Makefile. I've gone ahead and made such a script based on some new Autoconf macros. The included Makefile.in is largely a wrapper around setup.py. It also includes some extra touches, like installing to a Virtualenv and building the docs. This should all be standards compliant now. As the project grows, I'll be happy to help a bit with modifying the scripts.
Note: these files are part of the (as-of-yet un-announced) new GNU package pyconfigure. Over there I'll be working steadily to make these more powerful than just wrapper scripts. I'll keep you abreast of any interesting developments.
