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.

Schedule net/pchar for deletion.

I am the upstream author of this software.  pchar was originally
developed in a time before store-and-forward switches were common on
LANs.  Its algorithms assumed that there is only one packet queue per IP
hop.  Almost every modern network violates this assumption; thus pchar
will return incorrect results in the vast majority of environments where
it could be used today.  In addition, I have not supported this software
for over ten years.  For these reasons I am scheduling this port for
removal.

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

Update to pchar-1.5.

Contains minor bugfixes, but no real changes in functionality for FreeBSD
users.

While here, update WWW and distfile location to reflect current reality.

Unbreak this port on the Alpha (possibly other non-i386 architectures).   New
patch file will be subsumed into the next distfile.  No effect on   the i386, so
no PORTREVISION bump.

  5.  Install CHANGES file in doc directory.   6.  Fix PLIST to keep bento
