PackageKit on FreeBSD

I’ve just checked a few fixes into git to fix the compile of PackageKit on FreeBSD. I’ve been using 7.1-RELEASE-p4 for testing.

Obviously, there is no pkg backend (hint, hint) but the dummy backend seems to be working well. Now all somebody has to do is contribute a backend!
