Replace having copy of libsdl2-gfx sources in freeciv tree, link sdl2-client
against external library.

This was not done before as even Debian testing (which I use) had no
libsdl2-gfx available, and I saw no point in compiling it myself just so it
would be external to freeciv. Now there's suitable package in Debian testing.
Is there someone else, who *has all the other sdl2-client requirements* but
lack libsdl2-gfx, so that this would prevent the build? (Building it yourself
is straightforward, though, so even if we postpone this patch now, I'm not
going through any extra trouble to keep it out if there later is some problems
with the included sources, which were originally taken from alpha version of

In addition to applying the patch, libsdl2-gfx related source files should be
removed from client/gui-sdl2/ (see change of Makefile.am for list of files)
