Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.

This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these
pkg-descr files.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

- Rework broken conversion to option helpers in r399610: while ARABTEXDIRS
  ends up with the correct values, .for loop in `do-install' recipe would
  not iterate over `doc' subdirectory.  So instead, get rid of ARABTEXDIRS
  altogether and install docs in dedicated `do-install-DOCS-on' target
- While here, optimize away MKTEXLSR variable that was used only to amend
  PLIST_SUB knob and convert EXTRACT_SUFX to USES=tar:tgz per portlint(1)
