grive-daemon update: autostart added

grive-daemon is now capable of starting automatically after you login. This new feature works by having sudo make install add a file called start-grive-daemon.sh into your /etc/profile.d/ directory. Each time you log in, the script will fork, wait five seconds, then start grive-daemon.

The effect is that once you are logged in, and hopefully by the time Unity is finished loading, you will see a notification indicating grive-daemon is doing its usual thing of doing a sync to ensure everything is up-to-date.

This means you no longer have to call grive-daemon manually after you log in. Automation FTW!
