[Acf] script to set up acf development

As you might have seen on alpinelinux wiki there are some efforts going
on to get ACF working.

To make it easier to contribute in development I have made a small
script that simply installs an alpine chroot on your
ubuntu/debian/fedora box, checks out acf from svn, installs mini_httpd,
set up a user in chroot (so you dont need to be root all the way) and
even create a small .vimrc.

Basicly, you run the script, enter chroot, start http server and then
you start write ACF code.

You are of course a bit limited running in a chroot. Things like /proc
loading kernel modules and running iptables etc might not work as in a
real alpine box but you can most things, like editing conf files.

Script is available here:
