add systemd bits

Ever since systemd, there are problems with keeping track of the
running daemon process [1] and errors [2]. We were trying to avoid this
solution, but after several bugs and many failed attempts from various
people, it looks like there is no other working way than to use their
API to notify them that the daemon is running. Also Debian moved to
this solution [3].

Unfortunately Colin didn't manage to send the patch upstream, even
though it would be useful for others (adding to CC, sorry if it was
intentional) so I am trying to do so.

The code is very simple, guarded by the ifdefs and enabled only if
--with-systemd switch is added to configure. If it will not get to
OpenBSD, I thing carrying it in portable would certainly make a sense.
I also added a sample systemd service file to contrib directory to
reflect its usage (not particularly needed).
