cleanup: remove LEGAL and (support in) related tools.

LEGAL is badly maintained, LEGALlint notices quite a number of ports
which mismatch their line in LEGAL. The port itself is always leading.

* math/giacxcas: restrict RESTRICTED_FILES to giac_* only

Remove two tools that are no longer useful with Git.

- mfh: this is replaced by 'git cherry-pick -x HASH'
- psvn: unlike svn, git has no per-file properties

Adjust README accordingly.

[ 17:01 mfechner ] Original commit   Revision:497031
Added a script to bump PORTREVISION if a library has changed a version like

Just execute it in the root of you ports with e.g.
Tools/scripts/ devel/libgit2

This will search over all existing ports, check if they need to be bumped.
After all ports are bumped it triggers a portlint for each modified port.
The portlint loop continues till all errors and warnings are fixed.
Feel free to break this loop using CTRL+C.

UNIQUENAME was never unique, it was only used by USE_LDCONFIG and now,
we won't have conflicts there.

Use PKGBASE instead of LATEST_LINK in PKGLATESTFILE, the *only* consumer
is pkg-devel, and it works just fine without LATEST_LINK as pkg-devel
has the correct PKGNAME anyway.

Now that UNIQUENAME is gone, OPTIONSFILE is too. (it's been called

[ 12:49 netchild ] Original commit 
Add 2 scripts which help in port maintenance to list all direct library
dependencies of a port:
                Extract direct library dependencies (filenames) from binaries.
                Prints the name(s) of ports(s) given a library filename,
                suitable for direct use (copy&paste) in LIB_DEPENDS.

Example usage is included in the scripts. The following combined usage may
be helpful for further porting/testing automation: -b /usr/local $( /test/bin/*)
