bug#2534: NS: clipboard-kill-ring-save and clipboard-yank etc. not avail

A number of functions such as `clipboard-kill-ring-save' are not
available in the NS port because term/ns-win.el unbinds them.
It took me a long time to figure out, because they are pre-loaded in
menu-bar.el and present in `load-history'.

To to you the truth I'm not sure ATM why these are unbound. You could try commenting those lines out and seeing if anything bad happens.

Note that commands like `ns-copy-including-secondary' are bound to
menu bar items and to shortcuts such as Command-C (when CUA mode is
off), but they are not documented.  I would happily write some
docstrings, but it isn't clear to me why one would always want to set
the secondary "cut buffer" in this situation.

These are mainly for running under GNUstep in X windows, where the semantics of the two selection buffers have been confused for a long time, so it made sense just to throw things into both. These commands are bound to keys and I believe discussed in the manual. If you think they could be documented better, or should be enabled only under GNUstep, please go ahead with such changes.
