Remove gridftp from the CE metapackages

Description

Currently, globus-gridftp-server-progs and gratia-probe-gridftp-transfer are brought in by the base CE metapackage. We hope to drop them from the 3.4 iteration of the CE.

Installed osg-ce on a Fermicloud VM. No gridftp related packages were installed.

Test passed.

Honestly, I don't think anyone has needed to do a {{globus-url-copy}} since the demise of WS-GRAM. There was some argument to still keeping it around for GRAM itself (particularly before we completely switched to pilot-based submission), but that too is gone.

So, it seems appropriate to remove the dependency for 3.4.0.

Not really, I don't see why they would need to and I can't think of any CEs that are also running GridFTP servers (, ?). This is probably because we don't tell people to install GridFTP on CEs in our documentation.
