The biggest difference between runwhen and other schedulers is that
runwhen doesn't have a single daemon overseeing multiple jobs.
The runwhen tools essentially act as a glorified sleep command.
Perhaps runwhen does nothing that at(1) doesn't, and there are
lots of things at(1) does that runwhen doesn't:

- runwhen doesn't change user IDs - thus it will never run
  anything as the wrong user.
- It doesn't keep a central daemon running at all times -
  thus it won't break if that daemon dies.
- It doesn't require any modifications to the system boot procedure.
- It doesn't log through syslog(3) - thus it won't make a mess
  on the console if syslogd(1) isn't running.
- It doesn't centralize storage of scheduled jobs (or any other
  per-job information) - thus unprivileged users can install and use it
  without cooperation from root, and without the use of a setuid program
  to handle changes.
- It doesn't send output through mail - thus it doesn't break
  if there is no mail system installed.
- It doesn't check access control files - thus it doesn't gratuitously
  deny users.

Make libskarnet.so a runtime dependency.

Before this change, "pkg autoremove" would remove devel/skalibs and render
runwhen unsuable.

Unbreak by upgrading from 2003 to 2015. Do not install the useless
"doc" files.  The list of files is so small now, a separate pkg-plist
can be replaced with a PLIST_FILES-variable.

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

Remove more tags from pkg-descr files fo the form:

or variations thereof. While I'm here also fix some whitespace and other
formatting errors, including moving WWW: to the last line in the file.
