[PATCH, Valgrind integration] Automatic addition of --tool=memcheck if needed

I noticed that with the current CVS version, one has to explicitely pass 
--tool=memcheck to make the "Debug"->"Valgrind memory leak check" work: 
otherwise, nothing happens.

I guess that when the user wants Valgrind to perform a memory leak check, he 
wants the correct tool to be automatically chosen. That's why I propose the 
following patch, which automatically adds "--tool=memcheck" (only if it 
wasn't explicitely done by the user) to the arguments passed to Valgrind in 
the case of a leak check. Tell me if it's OK, useful... If so, I can commit 

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
