Bug Description

GNOME Zeitgeist uses a very simple Makefile at the moment, it is simple and it is an advantage but it doesn't support common targets (such as dist (actually there is "echo Not yet implemented") or distcheck) necessary for integration within the GNOME infrastructure (another example is a update-po target in po/).

Autotools can be perceived as scary, but they're not, and there is not much to know of them to use them in GNOME Zeitgeist.

Another important benefit it will bring is possible integration within JHBuild, so it can be distributed together with other GNOME related modules.

(btw this is also fixes the hardcoding of /usr/share/locale/ as localedir)
