Alpine is a screen-oriented message-handling tool for news, and POP, IMAP,
and local e-mail.  In its default configuration it offers a limited set of
functions geared toward the novice user, but it also has a large list of
optional "power-user" and personal-preference features.

Alpine's basic feature set includes:
	* View, Save, Export, Delete, Print, Reply and Forward messages.
	    Compose messages in a simple editor with word-wrap and a
	    spelling checker.  Messages may be postponed for later completion.
	* Selection and management of message folders.
	* Address book to keep a list of long or frequently-used
	    addresses.  Personal distribution lists may be defined.
	    Addresses may be taken into the address book from incoming mail
	    without retyping them.
	* New mail checking/notification occurs automatically (configurable).
	* On-line, context-sensitive help screens.

Alpine supports MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions), an Internet
Standard for representing multipart and multimedia data in email.

Remove CONFLICTS for the old pine stuff, it's been long enough

Fix the problem mentioned in the PR related to a feature of the port
that is useful, or dangerous depending on how you look at it. :)
If you run 'alpine -conf > file' it will merge in values from your
existing global conf file (/usr/local/etc/alpine.conf) and spit out a
new file with any new features added. The port used this feature when
I took it over, and I maintained that behavior because it is useful.
However, it is different from the traditional behavior of installing
a clean foo.conf.sample file, and maintaining foo.conf only if it
differs from the sample.

My solution to this problem is different than the PR's, but does not
involve patching the source. Using the pkg-install file and taking
advantage of the default behavior of the alpine -conf feature I have
created the best of both worlds, a clean .sample, and merging in local
changes if they exist.

Since I'm changing stuff anyway, do both sides of the process in a
more security-conscious way.

Bump PORTREVISION since the package is now different

A number of small-but-important updates:

1. Update the names of some configure flags. This would not have affected
users who used the defaults, or the package.

2. In order for the speller option to actually be chosen by configure
it already has to be installed, so add them to BUILD_DEPENDS. [1]
Fixing this properly also required a patch to configure which I am
submitting upstream.

3. Update the location of mlock (if installed) [1]

4. Turns out that alpine no longer uses the value of SSLTYPE internally,
(it is only used by the IMAP server which we don't build) so simplify
the whole SSL section considerably. All authentication types are now
available to alpine by default.

5. Include the proper MAKE_ARGS and relax a test in configure to give
users who want to try the new S/MIME support a fighting chance. [2]
