[vorbis-dev] patch for acinclude.m4

The configure script for vorbis-tools requires one to manually specify:


This is quite a pain to type.

It would seem that most people will be installing all of these packages
into the same $prefix.  So in the absense of specifying these flags, it
would seem suitable to just check for the appropriate header files and
libraries under $prefix.  In the spirit of "optimize the common case", I
have attached a diff (only a few lines, actually) to
vorbis-tools/acinclude.m4 that does just this.  It makes configuring much
simpler -- you can just do:

        ./autogen.sh --prefix=/tmp/foo

assuming that you've previously installed all the others with a --prefix
of /tmp/foo.

The same issue arises in vorbis' configure script, so I attached a diff
for vorbis/acinclude.m4 as well.
