OPAM depext plugin

Replacement for the currently used shell-scripts handling distribution-specific installation of OPAM packages' external dependencies (as per the depexts field in their definitions).

Currently supported depexts are:

Depext Online package list
alpine linux https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org
archlinux linux https://www.archlinux.org/packages/
centos linux https://pkgs.org/
debian linux https://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages
dragonfly
fedora linux https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/
freebsd https://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html
gentoo https://packages.gentoo.org/
homebrew osx http://braumeister.org/
macports osx https://www.macports.org/ports.php
mageia linux https://pkgs.org/
netbsd http://pkgsrc.se/
openbsd http://openports.se/
opensuse linux https://pkgs.org/
oraclelinux linux
rhel linux
ubuntu linux https://packages.ubuntu.com/
win32 cygwin

This version runs as an OPAM plugin; it may help pave the way to some specification of the depexts field and give some basis for a real plugin integrating with OPAM (see https://github.com/ocaml/opam/blob/master/doc/design/depexts-plugins)
