Update to latest PCP sources, and resolve these bugzillas:

  • Fix pmcd sigsegv in NUMA/CPU indom setup (BZ 858384)
  • Fix sar2pcp uninitialised perl variable warning (BZ 859117)
  • Fix pcp.py and pmcollectl with older python versions (BZ 852234)

want this (rpm, deb again, mainly)

  • Re-introduced the pcp/qa subdirectory in pcp and deprecated

the external pcpqa git tree.

  • Fix potential buffer overflow in pmlogger host name handling.
  • Reworked the configure --prefix handling to be more like the

rest of the open source world.
