Adding Central config.cache options
The following changes allow for use of a central configure cache file. This speeds up configuration of packages. Its use is configurable at the top level (BR2_CONFIG_CACHE - default n). Old style makefiles can use it if they use the following MACRO in makefiles: $(AUTO_CONFIGURE_TARGET) see my change to directfb.mk. New style Autotools.in will use it if you set the global option. However you can enable the global option and on a per package overrule it by doing the following: $(PKGNAME)_USE_CONFIG_CACHE = NO see fontconfig.mk for an example of this. Finally I have removed a few config variable settings which indicated no CXX compiler as this is wrong and breaks the build when using this central cache.

If you enable the BR2_CONFIG_CACHE option some Makefile.autotools.in based packages may now break - I cannot build them all. In this case you may need to remove config options that are being hardcoded all over the place (like gtk saying we have 2 CXX compiler) or disable the use of CONFIG CACHE file like I have done in fontconfig. I can build all packages required to get WebKit on DirectFB up and running and it runs fine. I will try to resolve any issues this creates as fast as I can.
