Here's a patch that switches libedit back to use libbsd instead of
using the embedded code copies, it also fixes the build system to not
embed fgetln() and wcsdup() even if they are found on the system,
stops embedding wcsdup() when widechar support is not enabled, and to
not check for functions twice. Fixes the pkg-config file, to not make
users unnecessarily link against tinfo. Removes the obsolete patches
related to libbsd. And adds a missing symbol to the symbols file.

I could split the patch in logical pieces if you want, I just wanted
to get this out of the way for now, in case someone else was
considering taking a look.
