Fix build with clang and getline(3)

The getline(3) failure was hidden by the fact the port was said to build with
gcc from ports which occulted the getline(3) change because it bundles the
system headers from when it was built (WTF???)

Adding -Wno-return-type to cflags allows to build with clang

Force numerous ports that fail to build with clang over to instead always
rely on gcc.  The patch uses the new USE_GCC=any code in Mk/bsd.gcc.mk to
accomplish this.

The ports chosen were ports that blocked 2 or more ports from building with
clang.  (There are several hundred other ports that still fail to build with
clang, even with this patch.  This is merely one step along the way.)

Those interested in fixing these ports with clang, and have clang as their
default compiler, can simply set FORCE_BASE_CC_FOR_TESTING=yes.

For those who have gcc as their default compiler, this change is believed
to cause no change.

Hat:		portmgr
Tested with:	multiple runs on amd64-8-exp-bcm and 9-exp-clang, with various
		combinations of patch/no-patch and flag settings.

Remove @exec ranlib's.  Since pkg_add doesn't change the timestamp,   these are
not necessary (even if the linker cares about the timestamp --   I'm not sure if
it does).
