In line with task #15345 (Automatically using backup tarball repository) and task #15359 (Selecting backup tarball repositories), it would also be good to download the general software package from Zenodo when the author as provided one.

When publishing a project, authors may also upload all their software to a server like Zenodo, for example `software-v4-0-g8505cfd.tar.gz' in zenodo.3408481.

Fortunately Zenodo can associate the DOI link before the publication. So, to make it easier/automatic for the reader of a project's paper, we can add an configure-time option to automatically download the Zenodo (or any other server) tarball of tarballs, with a command like this:

./project configure --use-tarball-package

When this option is given, the script won't ask for the "software tarball directory" any more. After the basic checks, it will download the packaged tarball (with known address defined by the author), unpack it, and define the unpacked directory as the `DEPENDENCIES-DIR' (directory that the users give for "software tarball directory").

In this way, we only need some small changes at the start and everything else will remain as before.
