cmake: Inform user about missing libraries #916

When compiling WeeChat with CMake it may silently disable explicitly enabled options when dependencies are missing.

E.g. when ENABLE_PERL=ON is set, but libperl-dev is not installed, WeeChat will silently not compile the perl target.

Instead there should be a warning or error, so that the user can take action (install dependencies or disable options)

core: remove obsolete file FindTCL.cmake (issue #916, issue #956)
This is file is provided by CMake and is not needed any more.  Moreover, it
causes an error on FreeBSD (TCL not found), even if TCL was properly detected
and used during the build.
