Bugs: proton-895

Repository: qpid-proton-git


This change modifies the way setup.py builds and installs the Proton C library should it not
be present on the system.  With this change, setup.py builds the C library directly, rather
than using cmake.  The advantages to this:

1) The resultant library is installed in the site-packages directory along with proton.  This
allows non-root users properly install the C librarys when doing a virtualenv or --user install.
2) pip can be used to install/remove the entire proton stack
3) only builds the C library - not the whole proton build
4) no longer requires cmake, which is not part of a typical python environment

All python unit tests pass when run against the bindings and C library installed with this
