Updated gplink

I’ve made some enhancements to gplink.

1. Automatically starts gpfdist when creating External Tables
2. New command line programs: gpltable (create table), gpldrop (drop table), and gplstart (start any missing gpfdist processes)
3. Removal of the need for the Greenplum or HAWQ client
4. No additional database objects are needed
5. Drop External Table handled from gplink also stops the gpfdist process it had started
6. Most code moved to Java with some basic shell scripts to automate calling the Java methods
