This patch adds a few utility functions to pkg-utils.mk.

Functions finddirclauses and findfileclauses help in building a find command
that skips a set of directories and performs operations on a set of files.
This pattern can for example be used to keep certain files or directories from
being stripped, or to remove certain files from a package installation.

The notfirstword function is the inverse of the 'firstword' function in make:
it returns all but the first word.

v5: Take split of Makefile.package.in into account.
v4: simplify find*clauses even further. Thanks, Arnout!
v3: use -path instead of -wholename; fix a bug in finddirclauses. Thanks, Cam.
v2: integrate _cont variants in main find*clauses functions. Thanks, Arnout.
