[pypy-dev] Enhancing the package.py script to download and build dependencies

danchr has submitted a pull request that enables our cffi build step 
(executed twice - once during tranlation and once during packaging) to 
download external dependencies. This is needed for MacOSX where the 
versions of OpenSSL, lzma, and _gdbm are not current or missing for pypy3.
Since it is a departure from current practice, I would like to solicit a 
wider base of opinions before committing. The pull request can be seen here
and the builds produced are here
Any thoughts?
