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.

Stage comms/qpage

The PR wasn't quite right with regards to stage support, so I had to modify
it further.  The post-install configure file handling was focused on the
wrong file.  I updated the default name of the qpage configure file in
order to use the @sample keyword.  I added an entry in UPDATING to let
users know they may need to move an existing configure file accordingly.

- Added rc.subr integration and removed references to etc/rc.d/
- Added OPTIONS knob for enabling srvrsnpp.c patch from ports/123437 (felt it
  was better to make the patch optional)
- Added more knobs for compile-time options: daemon user, syslog facility
- Changed ${INSTALL_SCRIPT} to ${INSTALL_DATA} in post-install target
- Removed old maintainer e-mail address from pkg-descr

Nitpicks for the comms/qpage port

        The comms/qpage port has a few minor problems.  A default installation
        the following errors when the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ script is

            qpage[68438]: cannot open /etc/ No such file or directory
            qpage[68438]: cannot access LockDir(/var/spool/lock): Permission
            qpage[68438]: cannot access QueueDir(/var/spool/qpage): No such file
or directory
            qpage[68438]: cannot chdir to QueueDir(/var/spool/qpage): No such
file or directory

        In short:

        1) qpage looks for its configuration file in /etc instead of
        2) It setuid()'s to a user (daemon) without permission to access
        but does not document this anywhere outside of the source.
        3) It's queue directory is not created by installing the port.
