Rename configure scripts to ""

Each thorn in ExternalLibraries has a script that configures it. For historic reasons these scripts all have different names. I propose to rename them all to "configure.*", where the suffix denotes the language (e.g. sh or pl).

    Since the name of the configure script has to be specified in the ccl files anyway this shouldn't be more than a cosmetic change, and a welcome one. Please apply.

    Now that all these scripts (actually it would be nicest if one could use the SCRIPT entry of configuration.ccl) are named, would it make sense to add them to the make dependencies? So that the library is rebuild when this file changes? I have no idea how hard to implement this would be.

    Can you open a ticket for this, and add this discussion?

    The script itself already checks a few conditions to find out whether the library needs rebuilding. One way would be to add a new DEPENDENCIES output to the script, which the flesh then processes when it decides whether to run the CST.
