I missed out the need to update autotools.bbclass once none of the
recipes directly mess with the CONFIG_SITE files.

I changed my mind about a dozen times on this, so seeing what someone
else thinks would be good.

review the patches. The name info.bbclass is perhaps too generic though
- could you call it something like autotools-info.bbclass?
The reason I called it info.bbclass is because it's not actually
related to autotools. What it does is provide information about a
target - endianess, 32/64 bit, which libc it's using, what alias
exists for it in a general sort of way.

The autotools.bbclass then makes use of this to decided which site
files to use.

I also made use of the info.bbclass to provide the endiness
information to recipes that were currently manaully looking in the
site file to determine this (since the way they currently work breaks
with the site file.)
