creates a pflash-version.tar.gz that has all the source code that
pflash needs and a Makefile appropriate for building it standalone
(the old pflash standalone Makefile). Basically reproduce something

happy to do a release. I'd like to release 1.0 after I check a couple
of other things (for example -b isn't working on some machines so we
can't use it to wipe the BMC flash, not a huge deal but ...).
