README: add a list of binary packages

Debian/Ubuntu are known to have bup packages in their archives, thanks
to Jon Dowland.

Also, a NetBSD package is currently being built, as was shared by Thomas
Klausner. However, it is still not found in the official NetBSD packages
search engine.

@rofl0r : I copy-pasted your comment to the mailing list and asked for someone to confirm the package names. Once we have a confirmation, I can make it into a patch on the README file.
