Deprecation of ipcalculator

Fedora provides two tools for IP address calculations. That is the ipcalculator and ipcalc. Ipcalculator was geared towards being used by administrators and ipcalc for use with scripts. This changed with Fedora 23 which provided an updated ipcalc tool which can be used both interactively and from scripts. That, and the fact that ipcalculator is not IPv6-ready suggests we should deprecate ipcalculator and keep a single tool for the job, ipcalc.
