make: undeprecate package as it is used by the uClibc test suite
The uClibc test suite can be installed on the target thanks to the BR2_UCLIBC_INSTALL_TEST_SUITE option, but it requires make to be installed on the target. Since the make package is currently marked as deprecated, it leads to the following warning: warning: (BR2_UCLIBC_INSTALL_TEST_SUITE) selects BR2_PACKAGE_MAKE which has unmet direct dependencies (BR2_DEPRECATED) We fix this by undeprecating the make package, and also update its description to explain why we have the make package even if we don't have support for building a toolchain for the target.

help
A tool which controls the generation of executables and other
non-source files of a program from the program's source files.
+ While Buildroot no longer supports building a toolchain for
+ the target, we keep a make package that is for example
+ useful to run the uClibc test suite on the target.
