Bug Description

ec2-ami-tools has a hard coded list of locations and regions.
This is silly, and makes a new release of the tools required for using something as simple as ec2-upload-bundle.

I've put a patch into the ppa version at lp:~aws-tools-dev/ubuntu/precise/ec2-ami-tools that hopefully addresses this, but test is needed at the moment.

  * debian/patches: add dep-3 headers to patches
  * bin/* all programs now use a different wrapper script for launching.
    which allows running out of source directory or installed location.
