Document required autotools versions

CentOS 6 is roughly the oldest thing we care about developers still
using, and it has autoconf 2.63 / automake 1.11.  These are both
older than openssl 1.0.0, so anybody who can't upgrade past those
probably can't upgrade to a modern openssl either.  And since only
people building from git or editing need to
use autotools, I'm not totally enthused about keeping support for
old ones anyway.

Closes ticket 17732.

o Minor features (compilation):
- Note our minimum required autoconf/automake versions in the
appropriate locations. Closes ticket 17732.
o Dependency updates:
- Tor now uses Autoconf version 2.63 or later, and Automake 1.11 or later
(released in 2008 and 2009 respectively). If you are building Tor from
the git repository instead of from the source distribution, and your
tools are older than this, you will need to upgrade.
