Add #include "config.h" before bfd.h

While building oprofile against a current CVS snapshot of binutils,
I received the following error:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/cseo/at5.0/at5.0-5/src/oprofile/libopagent'

In file included from opagent.c:63:0:
/opt/at5.0-5-rc1/include/bfd.h:37:2: error: #error config.h must be included before this header

I opened a bug against binutils for this (see,
but the rationale for this error was explained to me thusly:

"This is a correctness issue. bfd.h and the headers that bfd.h #include test at
least one HAVE_* macro. So you need to include the file that defines those
HAVE_* macros before bfd.h. [sic] It is a really good idea to always include
config.h (or sysdep.h or alloca-conf.h that include config.h) before any other
files, including system headers."

This patch is a minimal patch that addresses the build failure with binutils,
ensuring that our config.h is #include'd before bfd.h
