The mcron program represents a complete re-think of the cron concept originally
found in the Berkeley and AT&T unices, and subsequently rationalized by Paul
Vixie. The original idea was to have a daemon that wakes up every minute, scans
a set of files under a special directory, and determines from those files if
any shell commands should be executed in this minute.

The new idea is to read the required command instructions, work out which
command needs to be executed next, and then sleep until the inferred time has
arrived. On waking the commands are run, and the time of the next command is
computed. Furthermore, the specifications are written in scheme, allowing at
the same time simple command execution instructions and very much more flexible
ones to be composed than the original Vixie format. This has several useful
advantages over the original idea.

At the moment 1385 ports use BUILD_DEPENDS= ${RUN_DEPENDS} and 450
ports use BUILD_DEPENDS:= ${RUN_DEPENDS}. This patch fixes ports that are
currently broken. This is a temporary measure until we organically stop using
:= or someone(s) spend a lot of time changing all the ports over.

Explicit duplication > := > = and this just moves ports one step to the left

Update CONFIGURE_ARGS for how we pass CONFIGURE_TARGET to configure script.
Specifically, newer autoconf (> 2.13) has different semantic of the
configure target. In short, one should use --build=CONFIGURE_TARGET
instead of CONFIGURE_TARGET directly. Otherwise, you will get a warning
and the old semantic may be removed in later autoconf releases.

To workaround this issue, many ports hack the CONFIGURE_TARGET variable
so that it contains the ``--build='' prefix.

To solve this issue, under the fact that some ports still have
configure script generated by the old autoconf, we use runtime detection
in the do-configure target so that the proper argument can be used.

Changes to Mk/*:
 - Add runtime detection magic in bsd.port.mk
