Numeric-oriented programming language

Nickle is a programming language based prototyping environment with powerful
programming and scripting capabilities.  Nickle supports a variety of
datatypes, especially arbitrary precision numbers.  The programming language
vaguely resembles C.  Some things in C which do not translate easily are
different, some design choices have been made differently, and a very few
features are simply missing.

Nickle provides the functionality of Unix bc, dc, and expr in much-improved
form.  It is also an ideal environment for prototyping complex algorithms.
Nickle's scripting capabilities make it a nice replacement for spreadsheets
in some applications, and its numeric features nicely complement the limited
numeric functionality of text-oriented languages such as AWK and Perl.

- Set --mandir and --infodir in CONFIGURE_ARGS if the configure script
  supports them.  This is determined by running ``configure --help'' in
  do-configure target and set the shell variable _LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS
  which is then passed to CONFIGURE_ARGS.
- Remove --mandir and --infodir in ports' Makefile where applicable
  Few ports use REINPLACE_CMD to achieve the same effect, remove them too.
- Correct some manual pages location from PREFIX/man to MANPREFIX/man
- Define INFO_PATH where necessary
- Document that .info files are installed in a subdirectory relative to
  PREFIX/INFO_PATH and slightly change add-plist-info to use INFO_PATH and
  subdirectory detection.

Update to 2.46.  Remove patch-array.c which was properly fixed elsewhere a few
months ago, and add patch-func.c from cvs, to deal with a crash in GC with
malloc debugging on (i.e. -current).

Don't forget to rmdir the new include/nickle.  While I'm here, make rmdir of

anholt search for other commits by this committer
Update to 2.45.  The notable new feature is the foreign function interface,
which has been used for things like a cairo binding.  As the ffi often requires
loading libs which need pthreads, and we can't load pthreads during dlopen, link
nickle against the pthreads lib to begin with.

Update to 2.41 and take maintainership.  I hang out with the authors a lot, and
they've basically made me start using it.  It got to the point that I'd say, "I
should write that in nickle" and I didn't even know the language yet.

Move inclusion of bsd.port.pre.mk later in the file for conditional BROKEN
