packagers are not happy with the name /usr/local/bin/ops2c

Problem: nqp and rakudo uses this name: $(PARROT_BIN_DIR)/ops2c already.

After discussion with rakudo: Provide a new config entry 'ops2c' with the name "parrot-ops2c".
If it does not exit assume ops2c. If it exists it will be "parrot-ops2c".

Personally I think a simple parrot version check < 6.9.0 is technically easier.
It does not bloat all binaries with a new config entry.

@rurban rurban [ops2c] Rename binary to parrot-ops2c [GH #900]
Add a new config key 'ops2c' as "parrot-ops2c", but you can also check
the parrot version >= 6.9.0 how to call ops2c.
The old name ops2c was to confusing for upstream packagers, in /usr/bin/.
