Getting away from the generated header file [RFC]

We've had the TODO item "Remove the generated include file" [1] present for a
long time.

Generating the header file curlbuild.h causes head aches for people who want
to install the same set of headers for either 32bit or 64bits etc.

A few months ago posted I posted a patch here on the list that was an early
attempt to fix this, and I'm now back on the horse again and this time I've
submitted it as a pull request[2].

I'm looking for comments and feedback on the general approach and feasability.

Bring them on!
