In practice I don't think we have to consider very many icky bits.
flashrom has been using even simpler logic than in that configure
script for about three years already and a lot of the time it works
well. (r2117)

Things may get more complex as the dependencies stack up, but for the
number and type of dependencies we'll have for both msrtool and
flashrom I think we can continue to roll our own, and get away
without autotools.
