How reconcile openmodelica-dvel & octave dependencies on sundials vs. sundials2

Adam, Murray -- This small patch will patch the octave Portfile to make sundials2 support a variant.
If you want to install octave without sundials2 support (so you can use openmodelica which needs sundials) this should allow you to do that.

The command is:

sudo port -v install octave -sundials2

I built octave locally without sundials2 support and it seems to build cleanly.

I don't know how many people might want to install both octave and openmodelica.
If there are enough people, perhaps Marcus /Marius might add something like this into the octave Portfile.
