Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2016-03-02
    Affects: audio/alsa-utils, www/firefox, www/firefox-esr, www/seamonkey
    Author: jbeich@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      ALSA backend in libcubeb as used by Firefox has an unresolved issue
      with the OSS patch in audio/alsa-plugins. To avoid excessive CPU
      usage when playing HTML5 videos rebuild the port with BUFSZ_P2
      option enabled or reset options to default.
    
      However, with BUFSZ_P2 enabled alsa-utils may crash:
    
        $ aplay test.wav
        Playing WAVE 'test.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Stereo
        Assertion failed: (err >= 0), function set_params, file aplay.c, line 1289.
        Aborted by signal Abort trap...

MASTER_SITES cleanup.

- Replace ${MASTER_SITE_FOO} with FOO.
- Merge MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR into MASTER_SITES when possible. (This means 99.9%
  of the time.)
- Remove occurrences of MASTER_SITE_LOCAL when no subdirectory was present and
  no hint of what it should be was present.
- Fix some logic.
- And generally, make things more simple and easy to understand.

While there, add magic values to the FESTIVAL, GENTOO, GIMP, GNUPG, QT and
SAMBA macros.

Also, replace some EXTRACT_SUFX occurences with USES=tar:*.
