[Buildroot] [PATCH v2] package/opkg: disable tests and manpages

Changeset f1d3e09 (Build shared libraries only as the default) broke the
opkg package.

opkg wants to link its testsuite statically with the internal libopkg.
But in a shared-only build, there is no static library.

Since for Buildroot we do not care about tests, just disable them.

Fixes numerous build failures;

Disable manpages at the same time.

Note: we could also easily patch the Makefiles to not require a static
link, and that works quite well, too. But upstream has changed quite a
lot in this respect, so that change would not be upstreamable. Better
just disable tests as we do not use them anyway.

Changes v1 -> v2:

+Disable tests and mapages
+Tests are forcibly statically linked to libopkg, which does not work in
+a shared-only build.
+Since Buildroot does not care about testsuites, just disable building the
+tests. Disable manpages at the same time for the same reason.
+Note: dynamically linking with libopkg is also possible, but that would
+not be upstreamable (too much changes already in upstream).
