Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

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.

This commit implements such a proposal and moves one of the WWW: entries
of each pkg-descr file into the respective port's Makefile. A heuristic
attempts to identify the most relevant URL in case there is more than
one WWW: entry in some pkg-descr file. URLs that are not moved into the
Makefile are prefixed with "See also:" instead of "WWW:" in the pkg-descr
files in order to preserve them.

There are 1256 ports that had no WWW: entries in pkg-descr files. These
ports will not be touched in this commit.

The portlint port has been adjusted to expect a WWW entry in each port
Makefile, and to flag any remaining "WWW:" lines in pkg-descr files as

A few mirrors exist, including on the Wayback machine, but that one does
not seem to offen a suitable direct download link.
Therefore, small mirror sites have been selected that currently offer

The PORT_REVISION is not incremented since there is no other change than

Mega-patch to cleanup the ports infrastructure regarding our linux bits:
  - USE_LINUX now implies NO_FILTER_SHLIBS=yes. It also doesn't use FreeBSD
    tools to strip binaries anymore, so it's not neccesary anymore to override
  - USE_LINUX_PREFIX implies NO_MTREE now.
  - In the USE_LINUX case, USE_XLIB now depends upon the linux X11 libraries
    instead upon the native FreeBSD libraries.
  - The variable LINUX_BASE_PORT contains a string which is suitable as an
    item in *_DEPENDS, so if a port BATCH_DEPENDS or FETCH_DEPENDS upon the
    default (or overriden) linux base, ${LINUX_BASE_PORT} should be used
    instead of a hardcoded reference.
  - Change all ports to comply to the "new world order".
  - The Ports Collection now allows to override the default linux_base port.
    Specify e.g. OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=rh-9 in /etc/make.conf to use
    ${PORTSDIR}/emulators/linux_base-rh-9 (the logic is to use
  - If USE_LINUX or OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE doesn't point to an existing linux_base
    port and if USE_LINUX isn't set to "yes" (case insensitive), the port will
    be marked as IGNORE. [1]
  - Readd USE_LINUX knobs into several ports and make several uses of a
    conditional dependency ("USE_LINUX?=") into an unconditional one
    ("USE_LINUX=") which where removed/changed by Trevor to allow the use of
    alternative linux_base ports. While this is a nice goal, the implementation
    resulted in missing dependencies. The OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT knob
    in this commit is supposed to fix the problem while keeping the feature.
    Basicaly this includes a backout of Trevor's commit, to prevent confusion
    I mention it here explicitely.
  - Use the correct prefix (X11- instead of LOCAL- or LINUX-) for some ports.
    Chase dependencies for this.
  - Changes to make linux_devtools installable on amd64, remove some stray
    device nodes (they don't work on recent OS versions and aren't really
  - Make linux_base-8 PREFIX clean and remove some stray device nodes.
    Additionally tell a little bit more about how to setup NIS/YP [2].
  - Update the PGSQL dependency in the linux-opengroupware port to a recent
    version (the old one isn't available anymore), I don't know if this
    works (at least it isn't more broken than before).
  - Use PREFIX/usr/share/doc instead of PREFIX/usr/doc in the divx4linux
    ports, the former path exists already and gets populated by other
    packages too (PREFIX=LINUXPREFIX!).
  - Fix some obvious (non-linuxolator) bugs in some linux ports while being
  - Bump PORTREVISION where neccesary.

Say hello to the linux mega patch, it consolidates our linux bits a
little bit and allows to proceed to a more recent linux_base from
a stable (read as: the major bugs should be ironed out or identified
and most linux ports build just fine) source.

It also allows to ship 4.11 with a working linuxolator (the EOLed
linux_base is marked forbidden because of a security hole).

This is a major update, please read UPDATING (and CHANGES if you
develop linux ports).

 - change the default linux_base from v7 to v8
 - add a newer freetype to linux_base-8 for nicer fonts display [1]
 - don't let cpio use hardlinks in the linux_base-8 port to quiet some
   warnings in some cases [2]
 - fix a cut&past error in the linux_base-8 pkg-install script [3]
 - convert the binary knob "USE_LINUX" to a version specifier, e.g.
   USE_LINUX=<value> specifies a dependency upon
   emulators/linux_base-<value>, exceptions are a value of "7" (which
   does what you want and adds a dependency to linux_base) and any
   value without a corresponding port in
   PORTSDIR/emulators/linux_base-<value> (which adds a dependency to
   the default linux_base)
 - don't implicitly add USE_LINUX with the USE_LINUX_PREFIX knob,
   this allows us to use the USE_LINUX_PREFIX knob for linux_base and
   paves the way for splitting up future linux base ports into
   individual pieces
 - remove RESTRICTED from some GPL licensed ports, even when we only
   distribute binaries, we get them from official linux sites, so
   anyone can grab them there if he needs to
 - add a dependency upon the linux X11 bits where necessary (based upon
 - don't use USE_X_PREFIX in some linux ports since it adds a dependency
   to the FreeBSD X11 libs, as a workaround use PREFIX?= (the clean
   solution would be to remove the implicit USE_XLIB from USE_X_PREFIX)
 - bump the portrevision of the linux ports ("better safe than sorry"
 - pass maintainership of the important linux infrastructure to a
   mailinglist, hijack freebsd-emulation@ for this purpose (if somebody
   doesn't like this: tell us your bikeshed color at freebsd-emulation@,
   my color would be "linuxolator@" in case someone cares...)
 - add a pkg-install script for linux-fontconfig, but don't use it;
   everything should work without it (the FreeBSD fc-cache program should
   do all the work), but in case we need it we just need to decomment the
   pkg-install part in the Makefile
 - fix some dependencies
 - fix some bugs
 - add some static plists
 - unbreak the ports with dependecies to more than one linux_base

This also fixes some ports which are marked BROKEN because of dependencies
to v7 and v8 of linux_base at the same time.

Known bugs:
 - the linux-mesa and linux-devtools ports install libGL*.so symlinks
 - some "minor" plist bugs (e.g.{conf,cache} are modified by
   the linux X11 port, so linx_Base-8 moans at deinstall time)

Future work (interested souls should coordinate with freebsd-emulation@):
 - add some kind of USE_LINUX_X11 knob to streamline the X11 dependencies,
   or modify the behavior of USE_XLIB in the USE_LINUX case
   AFAIK trevor has some patches.
 - make USE_XLIB and USE_X_PREFIX orthogonal to be able to get rid of
   the PREFIX?= workaround in some linux ports
   Should be discussed/coordinated on/with x11@.
 - move the RPM bits from x11-toolkits/linux-gtk/Makefile to PORTSDIR/Mk/
 - update to a more recent linux base
