Paul Eggleton - Dec. 28, 2013, 10:29 p.m.
These recipes had short one-line DESCRIPTION values and no SUMMARY value
set. In this case it's much better to just set SUMMARY since DESCRIPTION
is defaulted from SUMMARY anyway and then the SUMMARY is at least
useful vs. the default value ("${PN} version ${PV}-${PR}").

For these recipes, I also took the opportunity to fix up the new SUMMARY
values as the originals needed tweaking. I've tried to make them
concisely explain the function of the recipe / package where possible.
