Packages could be linted
illumos-gate packages could be linted with `pkglint`.
A recent commit to gate introduced a new package which could not be installed on IPS distributions due to duplicated metadata.
It would be good to catch things like this earlier by running `pkglint` on the package set as part of the packaging checks.

Tested with many full RTI builds on OmniOS r151034 and latest OpenIndiana.
Built packages with and without this change and compared the manifests for all packages. In addition to the lines I explicitly added,
driver/xvm/pv gained a new dependency on
system/kernel/platform - this is because of the updated pkgdepend path for this component.
I introduced failures into manifests and confirmed that they broke the build and were properly picked up by either a failed `pkgdepend` run or by the final `pkglint`.
During testing I found a bug in the 'pkgdepend' command provided by IPS in
both OmniOS and OpenIndiana that occasionally (about 1 run in 20) caused packages to end up with
inconsistent variant information in them and then meant that they (rightly)
failed the pkglint introduced here.
The bug is now fixed in all supported OmniOS releases ('030, '032, '034) and
also in OpenIndiana - the fix is https://github.com/omniosorg/pkg5/commit/f0aceb9b3b918c3d92c6a8efe2d391b236c3e593
