Preliminary ebuild for Asterisk 16 - needs more work

Asterisk-16 was been released some time ago. 2018-10-09 according to It's the next LTS (Long Term Support) version, so it would be worth supporting it.

This is not urgent, since Asterisk-13 is still supported for another year and a half. Still, there would be a bit of migration effort to go from 13 to 16, so I think it's good timing to start working on an ebuild for 16 now.

I'm opening this bug, so we can discuss and track the progress of getting it supported in gentoo. I've attached an ebuild that compiles, but there are a few things to work on before this is ready for release.

To use it you need to manually download pjproject. I'm not sure why yet, but I suspect it's either a race condition or a permissions problem. Setting MAKEOPTS="-j1" didn't help, so I'm leaning towards a permissions problem.

Steps to build.

> ebuild asterisk-16.2.1.ebuild prepare
# Download pjproject to the temp-directory
> cd /tmp/portage/net-misc/asterisk-16.2.1/temp
> wget
# Now, configure and compile should work
> ebuild asterisk-16.2.1.ebuild compile

I've not tried installing or running yet.

Also, note the comments in the ebuild. I've disabled the gentoo patches. We need to check if they are still valid/needed.

Also, I've set a depencency on libedit. Either it no longer builds without it or we need to configure without it.
