### Contribution description
`tests/pkg_oonf_api` is a no-op. oonf_api contains it's own suite of test that were also ported to RIOT.
When I cleaned those up and thought about how they could be integrated into CI, I was seriously wondering if the package is still used by anymore.

 - oonf_api has not been updated in 6 years, it's stil at 0.3.0 from 2013.
 - tests were never integrated into CI
 - With NHDP the only upstream user of the package is deprecated.
 - Downstream users would rather prefer a less vintage version of the library.

So unless someone actually still has a use for this vintage pkg, I think we should better do away with it entirely. To be useful it would need to be updated to a more recent version and the unit tests would need to be integrated into our CI.

### Testing procedure
Make sure you have no use for the package anymore.
