Star is the fastest known implementation of a tar archiver.

Main advantages over other tar implementations:
	fifo			- Keeps the tape streaming.
	pattern matcher		- For a convenient user interface.
	sophisticated diff	- User tailorable interface for comparing tar
				  archives against file trees.
	no namelen limitation	- Pathnames up to 1024 Bytes may be archived.
	deals with all 3 times	- Stores/restores all 3 times of a file.
	does not clobber files	- More recent copies on disk will not be
				  clobbered from tape.
	automatic byte swap	- star automatically detects swapped archives.
	automatic format detect	- Automatically detects archive formats:
				  old tar, gnu tar, ansi tar, star.
	fully ansi compatible	- star is fully ANSI/Posix 1003.1 compatible.

According to the Porter's Handbook (5.12.2.3.) default options must be added to
OPTIONS_DEFINE. This policy has been implemented only recently that's why we
have many ports violating this policy.

This patch adds the default options specified in the Porter's Handbook to
OPTIONS_DEFINE where they are being used. Ports maintained by
gnome@FreeBSD.org, kde@FreeBSD.org and x11@FreeBSD.org have been excluded.

The vast majority of pkg-descr files had the following format when they
had both lines:

Author: ...
WWW: ....

So standardize on that, and move them to the end of the file when necessary.

Also fix some more whitespace, and remove more "signature tags" of varying
forms, like -- name, etc.

s/AUTHOR/Author/

A few other various formatting issues
