main/gstreamer: split gst-ptp-helper

Sertonix requested to merge sertonix/aports:gst-ptp-helper into master

The gst-ptp-helper is a setcap binary and should therefor be used with care. It is not essential to the functionality of gstreamer.

The reason for the capabilities is that this helper process has to bind to ports 319/320 for receiving PTP packets, and unfortunately UNIX considers ports < 1024 as privileged. ... Fortunately the only thing you’re losing like this is the ability to use a PTP clock from GStreamer.
