[pacman-dev] #10530: checksum verification does not work on BSD

I don't really like this solution, but it's the only portable solution I
could think of. Instead of using md5sum, sha1sum, etc from GNU
coreutils, openssl is used. Openssl has the limitation that it does not
support the other sha* algorithms, so they had to be removed from
makepkg. I don't like having to remove features in order to make
something more portable.

The patch has been tested on Mac OSX (10.5) and Archlinux.
