ACCUMULO-210 Create separate RPMs

Add descriptions to each module, add scripts to create user
(ACCUMULO-1387), and to set up system-wide configuration
(ACCUMULO-1385), using conventional unix directories from the RPM macros
where appropriate (ACCUMULO-1638)

> Accumulo shouldn't be owned and run as root when using the RPM/DEB packaging. Instead,
we should have a pre-install script that manages an accumulo user, in the same way that other
services create users (httpd, postgres, mysql, ntp, sshd, ftp, and countless others follow
this practice). Init scripts that launch accumulo services should suid to this user (using
lsb start_daemon --user flag, preferred).
