Never put a macro definition in

As of now, always put new macros in "acinclude.m4". Then run "aclocal" to
generate "aclocal.m4". Notice how "aclocal.m4" is in "diff_ignore", so
patches won't include it. So remember to tell people to run "aclocal" on
their box when you make a patch that includes new macros.

I'll return to hacking on the build system once the new release is
shipped, as we need to go over to autoconf2.5 soon. But that is going to
painful, since freeciv uses lots of custom hacked, incompatible and
unportable macros.
