Autoconf cleanup #362

This change does 2 things:

  • Allows autoreconf -i -s to work out of the box without having to specify -I m4.
  • Replaces acx_pthread.m4 with a more supported copy from the autoconf-archive project named ax_pthread.m4.

ax_pthread.m4 is a more defacto standard copy for testing out pthread
support than the acx_pthread.m4 m4 file from avahi. It should be used

This change allows one to run `autoreconf -is` (and the longform
equivalents) without having to specify `-I m4` in the invocation.
