Improvements for build-from-source.sh

Hey,
I tried using the build script to install the dependencies and noticed two things which i fixed manually.
First of all the phonetisaurus download path from your github is not available anymore. I replaced it with the original. I hope there were no major changes in there?

Secondly while going through the steps of the bash file manually more precisely while doing ./configure for phonetisaurus i got asked to configure openfst with the --enable-static flag instead of the --disable-static. Only after doing so the configuration could find the openfst files even though included in the bash command.
Was the disable on purpose and is it connected to the phonetisaurus-2019 file from your git or is it a bug?

The phonetisaurus download got lost in some repo restructuring, the correct download location is now:
https://github.com/synesthesiam/docker-phonetisaurus/raw/master/download/phonetisaurus-2019.tar.gz

(fixed in current repo version)

I honestly don’t remember anymore. I had used the sample build instructions from the Phonetisaurus repo at some point, and I believe they did the same thing. I may need to revisit the script and make sure only what’s necessary is present.

Honestly, if I could port what Opengrm and Phonetisaurus do to Python, even with a 5-10x slowdown, I would be so happy to be free of OpenFST and the C++ build chains!
