The aim of this patch is to make releases as simple as possible... i.e the end goal would be to have someone run "$ ~/rockbox/tools/release/ 3.3" and that would do everything except feed the cat...

the first version just modifies to accept a version number which eventually gets passed to the Makefile and used in the source to set the version string in the source to "3.x-rBLAAA".

This also defines RBRELEASE which can be used in the source to do stuff, for example, remove the debug menu in releases (if we decide to do that...) (RELEASE is defined in speex so had to add the RB prefix...)

Also, this changes the way configure is run to use command line args instead of passing input to it which is Just Wrong (TM) :p
This task depends upon
