[phenixbb] MTZ intensities interpreted as amplitudes by autobuild command-line versions up to 1.3b/rc6

Hi Peter,
That one should take intensities just fine. There is an explicit step to
convert intensities to amplitudes in the wizard.  I will have to check
however as to whether an MTZ file with intensities will have been passed
on to the AutoBuild wizard correctly...
