I've extended this a bit to allow site files to be per package,
rather than having to be global - including version specific site
files (such as db needs). Lots of packages just need a few site file
entries which are generally common across all builds or specific to
glibc or uclibc.

Probably the most useful part is allowing all of the x86 site files
to be merged together.

If no one has any comments on this then I guess I'll push it in.
First the info.bbclass, then clean up the few recipes that directly
mess with CONFIG_SITE, then clean up the x86 files and the the few
recipes that I've been maintaining.
For what its worth, I like the idea of this but haven't had time to
review the patches. The name info.bbclass is perhaps too generic though
- could you call it something like autotools-info.bbclass?
