PackageKit Ports

I've backported the PackageKit 0.5.x backend to 0.4.x,
and made some ports for it and the GNOME/KDE frontends.

As described earlier, it uses portupgrade and portaudit
and compiles binary packages from source ports if needed.

Hopefully this will go into PackageKit 0.4.10, for use
while waiting for required PolicyKit/DeviceKit support.

Besides some (unused) differences in API, the backend is
identical to the one in the latest PackageKit (0.5.2).

Feedback appreciated, maintainer didn't respond.
