Update ipmitool, install ipmievd init script, other minor changes

Attached is a patch that updates ipmitool to 1.8.10, installs an init script for ipmievd, and configures with dependency tracking disabled and uses parallel make for possible slight build speedup.

Other issues not addressed in this patch I noticed when looking into the package:

1) BuildRequires: tcl-devel would result in some TCL support built in.  Not sure if it's desirable though, but would be good to explicitly enable/disable it for reproducible builds.

2) A private copy of libedit is used; would be good to make use of the separately packaged system libedit.

3) A GUI is included in the sources, but not installed.  Is this on purpose?

4) ipmitool seems to be capable of using freeipmi as well.  I haven't tried it but I suppose "BuildRequires: freeipmi-devel" would build it in.  Same thing as comment 1) about reproducible builds applies, but wouldn't it make sense to split ipmitool into a completely separate package instead of bundling it in here?

The Mandriva openipmi package seems to have a bunch of improvements over the Fedora/EL one, such as TCL support, UI (whose separation allows fewer dependencies in the main package, e.g. TCL) and GUI subpackages.

ipmitool-1.8.10 is now packaged separately in rawhide and it provides ipmievd init script. See the review for the rest of reported issues.
