[Libreoffice] Splitting up source/header files for clarity

I have now splitted the implementation of funcdesc.hxx out into a new
source file funcdesc.cxx. In the process I also have extracted two new
header files for classes previously defined in global.cxx. I have
corrected all includes and the result compiles for me, I have added
the new source file to the relevant makefile.mk. Further I have added
comments to the first class in funcdesc.hxx, I hope to document the
others in a later patch. Please review my patch and apply if ok.
