wic: get rid of using wic-tools
At the moment, when building images with IMAGE_FSTYPES=wic one ends up depending on wic-tools and thus syslinux and grub-efi even when not using those at all. Ideally, building an image with wic should only build the tools and components really needed. The problem is that "wic-tools" is needed also for the manual invocations of wic, in which case everything that might be needed has to be built in advance. Replaced dependency on wic-tools with dependency to a much shorter set of tools that wic uses almost for any image: 'parted', 'gptfdisk', 'dosfstools' and 'mtools'.
