[Systems] Sunjammer services cleanup

I removed a few unused services from sunjammer and uninstalled their
dependencies: drupal, civicrm, asterisk and freepbx.
I also dropped a bunch of accounts in mysql that were seemingly unused
(addons at localhost and alike).
Such cleanups always contain a non-zero potential for breaking other
things, but to keep our servers maintainable and secure we can't let
things degrade too much.
It is a lot easier if we perform such cleanups immediately when we
decide to terminate a service instead of months later when nobody
remembers what the leftovers were for.
Possible associated items to check for when removing a service include:
* accounts in passwd and group
* accounts in ldap (but we use ldap only for humans)
* apache configuration files
* logs (especially apache logs)
* database users
* domain names
