Clean up support for FreeBSD 11.2.

While here, modernize some comments in Mk/bsd.*.mk.

Note that graphics/drm-fbsd11.2-kmod is not renamed yet, this was somewhat
under discussion.

devel/ElectricFence: add missing posix_memalign()

The current implementation did not handle posix_memalign().

Programs using posix_memalign() to allocate memory effectively
silently fall back to the standard implementation. Whenever the
program calls free() to release the memory, the efence implementation
is called and barfs that the memory is unknown, leading to a core
dump.

Sadly, many programs use posix_memalign and thus could not be debugged
with efence.

Example use case: See nginx, PR#235296

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:*.

Add two more patches found in the Linux wild. Would've been
better to be downloading them, but, strangely enough, they
don't seem available in the raw source -- only in the pretty-fied
HTML :-(

Of the two remaining once, the ElectricFence-2.2.2-madvise.patch
is currently causing me unexplained crashes, and the
ElectricFence-2.2.2-pthread.patch does not seem to matter for us,
because we don't USE_SEMAPHORE:

Preserve whitespace in the argument list.  This can be tested by running
"ef.sh /bin/echo a\ \ b"; the correct output is "a  b\n", but before this
commit it would print "a b\n" instead.
