Hey all,

As I said in another thread, today we depend on a few more host utilities
being installed on the host than oe.dev does.  This is an attempt to fix
that a bit and improve on the situation at the same time.  First up is
dropping mercurial-native as we don't have any hg:// URIs and meta-oe now
has a mercurial-native recipe if needed.  Next up is help2man-native.  We
now only ship the GPLv3 version as a -native recipe.  This retains a
"don't re-conf" do_configure and an expanded comment that explains that if
we did so we would need perlnative.  Since this is just making a perl script
it feels like doing the reconf and required patching is overkill.  After
this, add in a local.conf.sample change so people can ASSUME_PROVIDED
this themselves if needed (based on oe.dev)

I've tested this with qemux86 and core-image-sato
and it still all builds and works as much as it has been for me wrt tests.

Finally, in the commit message I said avoiding perl-native problem and what
I'm speaking of is that since I put help2man-native in with all of the
autotools deps, adding perlnative to the inherits list would bring perl in
for everything.  We can punt on this by just not adding target help2man for

v2: Move mercurial-native recipe to meta-oe, GPLv2 version of help2man-native
v3: After talking with RP, we don't want to do the automatic ASSUME_PROVIDED
thing anymore.
