Add configure option "--with-modlist" to set default modpack list URL.

I need this, but I don't know if anybody else needs, so opinions about whether
its inclusion is acceptable or not welcome.

The use-case is making snapshot builds (crosser builds - see forum thread
http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9 ) and having separate modpack
list compatible with that particular build (freeciv revision).
The reason I'd rather have this as always available configure option and not
an local source modification is that I want to make builds from completely
unmodified sources. 1) more GPL compatible - build from locally modified
sources would require making those modified sources available. 2) Builds use
also --enable-svnrev to make exact freeciv revision number available
(important information when debugging problems users report). It doesn't
particularly like local modifications.
