Complete the rewrite of the gamedata build pipeline.

I have half of a working NeL gamedata build pipeline ready in Python, which has successfully built a landscape for NeL, and has some of the other processes running as well. Needs to be updated to support landscape made with the world editor.

- I'm missing the original .bank files: http://dev.ryzom.com/issues/931
- Some 3ds Max assets use a proprietary Ubisoft plugin called Map Extender for texturing, and cannot be exported.

Missing files for proper build of newbieland (folders might be slightly different):
- W:/database/landscape/ligo/jungle/max/*.max (exports to .zone, .ig and .cmb i believe; the data with world edit only contains the .zone)
- W:/database/landscape/_texture_tiles/jungle/jungle.bank (smallbank cannot be used to paint, only usable for runtime display)
- W:/database/landscape/ligo/jungle/big_newbieland.tga
- W:/database/landscape/ligo/jungle/noise_newbieland.tga
- W:/database/landscape/ligo/jungle/colormap_newbieland.tga

There's still an issue with the transition tiles, possibly due to being in png format.

Fix issue with transition tiles.
Package the max files that are part of newbieland landscape.
Build rbank and igs.

Further todo:
Common data pipeline configurations, characters and sfx, etc.

Documentation coming soon.
