SlimServer has been superseded by SqueezeCenter for over a year and the
audio/slimserver port has been marked as DEPRECATED for over eight
months.  Remove all SlimServer related ports.

I was unable to contact the maintainer of slimserver-lastfm and
slimserver-slimscrobbler, but they have received no updates since
late 2006.

The other slimserver-* ports were maintained by tdb who approved their
removal (and who maintains squeezecenter-* couterparts for most of
them.)

Fix a few "bad example" problems in the rc.d scripts that have been
propogated by copy and paste.

1. Primarily the "empty variable" default assignment, which is mostly
${name}_flags="", but fix a few others as well.
2. Where they are not already documented, add the existence of the _flags
(or other deleted empties) option to the comments, and in some cases add
comments from scratch.
3. Replace things that look like:
prefix=%%PREFIX%%
command=${prefix}/sbin/foo
to just use %%PREFIX%%. In many cases the $prefix variable is only used
once, and in some cases it is not used at all.
4. In a few cases remove ${name}_flags from command_args
5. Remove a long-stale comment about putting the port's rc.d script in
/etc/rc.d (which is no longer necessary).

No PORTREVISION bumps because all of these changes are noops.

Upgrade slimserver to version 6.5.0.

The biggest change is that the database is now MySQL instead of SQLite.
Slimserver starts it's own MySQL instance so you don't need to deal with
MySQL configuration, but both the client and server are now
dependencies.  For more info see the change log at:

        http://www.slimdevices.com/Changelog6.html

Most of the binary perl modules are now port dependencies.  YAML-Syck is
not yet because it didn't work.  I suspect a version issues (the ports
version is newer).

Remove the FreeBSD KEYWORD from all rc.d scripts where it appears.
We have not checked for this KEYWORD for a long time now, so this

this point is mostly for pedantic reasons, and partly to avoid
perpetuating this anachronism by copy and paste to future scripts.

Improve the upgrade process a bit.  It was previously possible for
the log file to be owned by root because most files were opened/created
before the uid was switched to non-root.  That's not the case anymore
so we need to be sure those files are owned by slimserv:slimserv.
This isn't a problem with new installed because they are made
correctly in the rc script, but on upgrades it may be an issue.
Handle this by resetting the permissions of existing files and
directories during the install.

While I'm here, remove some leftover directory creation.  It properly
belongs in the startup script so the files will be created if /var
is clear.

Bump port revision.

Upgrade to 6.0.1.

Stop trying to use ports versions of all the CPAN bits and do things the way
the vendor expects.  It's less elegant, but much easier to maintain.  Do build
our own versions of binary modules so we have a chance on all platforms, but
use a slightly modified version of their script to do so (mostly make it
non interactive and fetch the files from DISTDIR/DIST_SUBDIR rather
than direct from slimdevices each build).

Mark RESTRICTED.  The distfiles and the build contain non-restributable bits.
Some of the people building packages for linux are working on a way around
this (not distributing the firmware and using alternate images), but that's
no here yet.

Various enhancements and fixes for slimserver:
 - Use a new system to track which files in the CPAN directory should be
   installed.  As a side effect, generate most of the RUN_DEPENDS list
   at runtime.
 - Add a script to start softsqueeze.  The javavm port and a Jave VM
   must be installed to the script to actually work.  A dependency was
   not added at this point because that's a huge barrier.
 - Fix a bug in EXCEPTFILES processing.
 - Patch the configuration parsing code to default the cache and
   playlist directories to locations under /var/db/slimserver instead
   of the weird defaults.  This will fix the cache on new installs. [0]
