[UDUNITS #AKI-804770]: Support for 'ppv' unit

Well... you can *always* add additional, non-"official" units to the database.
I'd recommend creating the file "udunits2-local.xml" and importing it in the
file "udunits2.xml". The new units just won't be in the official distribution.

> The changes cover several aspects:
> - eliminating compiler warnings

> exported symbols. The clean way to do this is to give all exported symbols 
> from a library the same prefix. This is already the case for most udunits2 
> symbols, but not everywhere. This is why, for instance, the 'ut' prefix is 
> introduced for the yacc/flex files.
> - allowing the code to be build with both autotools and CMake. This means 
> that .c files cannot be used as include files (which explains the changes we 
> made for scanner.c).
> Any of these changes that you could incorporate in a future version would be 
> highly appreciated.

I'll take a look.
