Conversion from (now defunct) autoconf-2.61 to autoconf-2.62

Handle an edge-case where lang/gawk is installed prior to any autoconf*
ports, which then results in an implicit dependency on gawk, with the
obvious bad things happening should gawk be later removed.

Note that because this is an edge case, which most folks will not run
into, and because it doesn't change the default package, I am not
bumping PORTREVISION as suggested in the original patch.

- Set --mandir and --infodir in CONFIGURE_ARGS if the configure script
  supports them.  This is determined by running ``configure --help'' in
  do-configure target and set the shell variable _LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS
  which is then passed to CONFIGURE_ARGS.
- Remove --mandir and --infodir in ports' Makefile where applicable
  Few ports use REINPLACE_CMD to achieve the same effect, remove them too.
- Correct some manual pages location from PREFIX/man to MANPREFIX/man
- Define INFO_PATH where necessary
- Document that .info files are installed in a subdirectory relative to
  PREFIX/INFO_PATH and slightly change add-plist-info to use INFO_PATH and
  subdirectory detection.
