Hey Sean,

Packaged versions of Orca will have the following steps run to
generate a tar.gz:

rm autogen.sh
cd ..
tar cvf - orca-X.YY | gzip -v -9 > orca-X.YY.tar.gz

Installing Orca shouldn't require the autoconf and associated
scripts to generate the configure file.

For this reason, I'm leaving it out of the INSTALL file, but it's
still in the HACKINg file.
