Description of the change

Added ktnef to resolve kmail failing everywhere, e.g.:

The list-missing are actually all from ktnef, which used to be part of the whole kde-pim module that kmail was split off from. So it needed to be added back. This is consistent with a recent commit upstream:

The ktnef.install file was added with the results of list-missing, wildcarded out, and ktnef was added to control. Regarding this latter piece, I used the Breaks/Replaces version based on what Neon is doing with other packages having a similar relationship with kmail:
(as an aside, their ktnef is a separate source package)
