[PATCH 0/4] Some autotools updates for libtwin

I am resending the series since some of the messages didn't make it to
the  mailing list.

I was taking a brief look at libtwin[1] and I noticed that the compiled
object files ended up in the top-level directory, and this didn't look
particularly nice.

On my way on fixing that (patch 2/4), I took the chance to update the
autotools config a little (patch 1/4), to enable silent build rules
(patch 3/4), and to add a .gitignore file as well (patch 4/4).

Ciao ciao,

  configure.ac: use autoupdate to modernize the syntax
  configure.ac: use the subdir-objects option
  configure.ac: enable silent build rules by default if available
  Add a .gitignore file

 .gitignore   | 32 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
