FS#1144 - [vobsub2srt] please add package

here is the description from the website

VobSub2SRT is a simple command line program to convert .idx / .sub subtitles into .srt text subtitles by using OCR. It is based on code from the MPlayer project - a really really great movie player. Some minor parts are copied from ffmpeg/avutil headers. Tesseract is used as OCR software.

vobsub2srt is released under the GPL3+ license. The MPlayer code included is GPL2+ licensed.

The quality of the OCR depends on the text in the subtitles. Currently the code does not use any preprocessing. But I’m currently looking into adding filters and scaling options to improve the OCR. You can correct mistakes in the .srt files with a text editor or a special subtitle editor.

Attached is a working PKGBUILD for the latest stable version.
