Allow use of $ACLOCAL to override the name aclocal
Useful for instance when only aclocal-1.10 exists. But, systems that are broken like that will have lots of more problems, too. It is just a (sad?) fact that building LO on anything except those platforms that people work on constantly will require lots of tweaks. Many of the assumptions in various solenv .mk files for rare platforms are rather outdated and/or arbitrary, assuming a certain mix of more or less "official" additional tools.
