Arm install fails if torctl in path

Description

When you run arm's install script it...

  • checks if TorCtl is available and, if not, prompts the user to get a copy
  • copies all the modules, including TorCtl, to the installation destination

If the user has python-torctl installed then we skip fetching a local copy of torctl (since it's already available externally), then setup.py fails to copy a 'src/TorCtl' module since it's not contained within arm itself.

Nyx no longer depends on TorCtl (it uses Stem instead).
