[Rivet] HepMC, cmake and our bootstrap script

HepMC moved to cmake as preferred build method, and the current tarball
(2.06.08) doesn't even come with a configure script anymore, even though
one can still generate it using autoreconf. Now the question is what we
do with the bootstrap script. Shall we rely on the existence of cmake? I
see it's installed on lxplus and on the grid cluster in Wuppertal, but
it's not available on the grid machines in Durham. Or shall we call
autoreconf and hope that option doesn't go away any time soon?
