Add license for Sun XDR routines

I can find no distribution from Sun, and the original GROMACS import
does not reproduce a coyright statement, if one existed. If this ever
proves to be a problem, we can replace these routines with LGPL
alternatives.

This seems nasty - there was no actual copyright statement preserved in Erik's original commit. WWW seems to have some doubt about whether this code is released under a legally dependable license. If this ever becomes an issue, we should probably switch to the LGPL http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/portablexdr/
