Locale::Maketext external cache support

This patch with tests provides RO support for lexicon hashes in
Locale::Maketext.  This allows you to have GDBM language files owned by
root which can be accessed by non-root, but not altered.

If your lexicon is a tied hash the simple act of caching the compiled
value can be fatal.

For example a GDBM_File GDBM_READER tied hash will die with something

  gdbm store returned -1, errno 2, key "..." at ...

All you need to do is turn on caching outside of the lexicon hash itself
like so:

  sub init {
      my ($lh) = @_;
      $lh->{'use_external_lex_cache'} = 1;

And then instead of storing the compiled value in the lexicon hash it
will store it in $lh->{'_external_lex_cache'}

I've verified that blead is the authoritative location for
Locale::Maketext source.
