If I recall correctly, csound is not really needed to generate test files because those files (generated) are included even in the git repository. It's to be checked.

I'd be ok to only rely on csound for generating them, if someone has enough fun to build a robust set of sound-checking tests (by robust I mean that those generated files are not different based on csound version).

With current version of Gnash, when user tried to run `./configure` script
without Csound tools installed on the system, it would show a following message:

        WARNING: You need to have csound installed
                 to have real fun.
                 Install it from
                 or .deb users: apt-get install csound
                 or .rpm users: yum install csound

Instead of "to have real fun", the message should show what exactly Csound
have to do with Gnash's build process or testing process; allowing user
to make an informed decision whether to install it or not.

In this case, according to `testsuite/media/`, Csound is used
for generating some audio files for Gnash's audio-related test cases.

Proposed patch changes the message to:

        WARNING: You need to have csound installed to generate some of
                 sound-related test files in Gnash testsuite.
                 Install it from
                 or .deb users: apt-get install csound
                 or .rpm users: yum install csound

Note: this patch uses `PKG_WAR()`, `PKG_SUGGEST()`, `DEB_INSTALL()`,
and `RPM_INSTALL()` macro facility instead of printing directly to fd 4.

Gnash: 0.8.11dev (patched against git f0f66ce 23-Sep-2015)
CSound: libcsound64-5.2 1:5.17.11~dfsg-3 (debian)
System: Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 Wheezy i386
