libidn2 requires libunistring

Both need to go in before glibc, so these will be very early in Chapter 6.

We will be able to remove both packages from blfs.

It turns out that libidn2 is dynamically loaded at run time and is only needed if internationalized domain names are used for DNS lookup. This is an optional run time dependency.

Added a note to glibc pointing to the BLFS libidn2 instructions if this capability is needed.

Fixed at revision 11447.
