patch to simplify adding new devices

This patch to configure.ac in gs 9.01 makes it easier to add new devices and
configure them using --with-drivers.
With this patch, you can run
  ./configure --with-drivers=ALL,USER:mydriver
The result of USER:mydriver is adding $(DD)mydriver.dev to DEVICE_DEVS2 in
Makefile.  You still need to write the driver and add a sequence like the one
below to devs.mak.
mydriver_=$(GLOBJ)gdevmydriver.$(OBJ)
$(DD)mydriver.dev: $(mydriver_)
        $(SETDEV) $(DD)mydriver $(mydriver_)
$(GLOBJ)gdevmydriver.$(OBJ): $(GLSRC)gdevmydriver.c $(GDEV)
        $(GLCC) $(GLO_)gdevmydriver.$(OBJ) $(C_) $(GLSRC)gdevmydriver.c
