this patch removes babeltrace from:
- detected features display -> so user's not curious where to get the latest babeltrace version ;-)
- test-all optimization -> so we could use features build speed up, missing babeltrace was stoping this

but we still check for babeltrace (out of the default list code)
in order to enable the ctf convert code if it's in the system

I admit the extra warning about missing babeltrace support
might be confusing, I can remove it.. ;-)

I think we could add new class of features that are enabled
just on demand and not checked by default at all, like:
'make BABELTRACE=1' or via .config,
but we need to add support for that first
