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.

Update all PostgreSQL to fix a security flaw

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today released versions 8.1.4, 8.0.8,
7.4.13 and 7.3.15. This is an urgent update to close a security hole which
can permit a SQL injection attack on some applications running PostgreSQL.

Users are urged to apply the update as soon as reasonably possible. Since the
update affects client functionality, most driver projects will be updating
this week as well.

Because the security issue involved is complex, we have added a section in
Techdocs to explain it: Please
read this first before applying the updates.

Also, fix rc_subr startup problems on FreeBSD-7.x.

Remove the FreeBSD KEYWORD from all rc.d scripts where it appears.
We have not checked for this KEYWORD for a long time now, so this
is a complete noop, and thus no PORTREVISION bump. Removing it at
this point is mostly for pedantic reasons, and partly to avoid
perpetuating this anachronism by copy and paste to future scripts.

Handle a change in rc.subr. nowadays, "faststart" is used instead of
"start" when booting, since there's no need waste time checking for
running processes when the OS is starting up.

Bumping portrevision.
