Cultural Exchange 4: First YaST

Managed to compile and run YaST up to nfs-client and ntp-client. Of course it does not work properly, but makes for a nice Potemkin hamlet.

Fresh libzypp needs cmake 2.6 but there is only 2.4 in .debs. Fortunately the cmake authors provide a binary tarball with 2.6, only one has to know where to put the contained directories.

Notes for clean-up: Libzypp should say it needs hal-storage and boost-filesystem too. Python-bindings should check for python-dev, should use python-config. Perl does not seem to respect vendor_arch for ycp.pm?
