build: break autotools configuration to warn about deprecation

Jan Vaclav requested to merge jv/break-autotools into main


This MR breaks the build process when using autotools, requiring an argument to be passed to ignore the deprecation.


We are planning on completely dropping Autotools in the future. Thus it is a good idea to deprecate it first, and warn anyone using it to build NM, so that they are aware of this change.
