hivex: Reimplement hivexget as a simple shell script.

hivexget is currently a large C program.  Now that we have hivexsh
(the shell) we can reimplement hivexget as a simple bash script that
calls out to hivexsh.

It also adds l10n support to hivexget and hivexml which lacked them

To test this, try:

(You can only do this test after installing the package, or at
least the '' mo-file in the correct place).

supermin: Prevent multilib corruption (RHBZ#558593).

On some combination of installing, upgrading and removing the base
libguestfs package on x86_64, multilib can corrupt libguestfs by
leaving a copy of /usr/bin/libguestfs-supermin-helper around which
references the wrong architecture (usually, contains links to the
i386-based appliance, when the x86_64 appliance should be constructed).

This commit changes libguestfs-supermin-helper so that the script is
the same on all architectures.  Instead, the library passes the
differences to the script (eg. $host_cpu).  Because the i386 and
x86_64 libraries should be at different locations (/usr/lib vs
/usr/lib64) this should prevent multilib from screwing things up.
