[Pulp-dev] Vagrant packaging workaround

I believe that the 'no packages given for erase' can be solved with the
xargs option '--no-run-if-empty'. That will prevent xargs from executing
anything if there are no arguments to pass.

The revised command would be:
rpm -qa|grep pulp| sudo xargs -n 1 --no-run-if-empty rpm -e --nodeps
