Bug#584590: salome: New binary package organization

Hello Denis,

I just came back to updating the Salomé package in alioth, but I forgot
about these emails.  So although my work is based on your earlier
patches, I'm afraid I may have re-done some of the work you already did
in your repository, but did it differently.  I apologize for that.

The package in alioth should build now.  For each module, it creates a
separate build tree, reconfigures, configures, compiles and installs,
then removes the build tree.  This should reduce the disk space required
for compilation by quite a lot.

So the only things remaining for the -10 release are this python module
issue (below) and reorganizing the binaries.  I'll look at your
wip-python repository branch for the former, and will take a stab at the
latter, based on the division proposed earlier in this bug.

Then we can move on to porting the patches to 5.1.4 (or current upstream
git), and shrinking and reorganizing the documentation...
