Outsource a packageable third-party software

mentors: Adrien Destugues - PulkoMandy

Most (ported) third-party software should be removed from the Haiku source repository. HaikuPorts recipes should be created and the software should be provided as a package (or multiple packages). For libraries it may be necessary to provide them as build features (cf. build/jam/BuildFeatures for reference (e.g. icu or openssl)); in rare cases the build system may need to build (parts of) them from the sources (cf. build/jam/BuildFeatures for reference (e.g. zlib or libsolv)). Some packages will need to be built during the bootstrap process.

For this task, pick one from the list of software that still needs to be outsourced from Haiku's source tree and in your claim let us know which one you plan on working on.  We will not accept your claim until you identify which one you plan to work on.
