Fixed python-cvxopt-setup.patch

Hi all. This is caused by the way python-cvxopt-setup.patch alters cvxopt to build against the system SuiteSparse library. It deletes parts of the included SuiteSparse sources from some modules' "sources" lists, so it needs to add the corresponding system libraries to their "libraries" list.

To test, I replaced this patch with the attached version (and replaced /usr/lib -> /usr/lib64 for my own system) and rebuilt; it works now! So I believe that the upstream release is OK and that applying my changes will fix the Fedora package.

(As a quick technical note: libcholmod.so pulls in libamd.so and libcolamd.so, so linking with it should be enough to replace all of the sources deleted by python-cvxopt-setup.patch.)
