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.

bsd.sites.mk: Update all ports using USE_GITLAB

Replace GL_COMMIT by GL_TAGNAME in all ports. The new GL_TAGNAME is
backwards-compatible (accepting any commit hash as before), but also
understands an actual tag name. Moving to tag names where appropriate is
left to individual ports' maintainers.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

devel/libevdev: Update to teh lastest snapshot

Update devel/libevdev to the latest snapshot.
This snapshot is comparable to libevdev 1.9.1 with added FreeBSD support and
some minor fixes.
Remove local patches for FreeBSD support, as FreeBSD support has been
developed and committed upstream.
Switch to use meson instead of autotools for builds
Use bundled files instead of evdev-proto, similar to how x11/libinput is
done.
Pass maintainership to x11@, since this port is used in the xorg and wayland
input stack.

Split out evdev headers from multimedia/v4l_compat

Split out evdev headers (input.h, input-event-codes.h, uinput.h) into their
own port, devel/evdev-proto, and update those to be current with the Linux
4.19 kernel.  This is done in order to be able to update the rest of the
FreeBSD input stack, which is forthcoming.

By splititng out the evdev headers we can update them independent of other
updates in v4l_compat, which makes it easier for the graphics team to keep
track of them and keep them updated as needed.

Update devel/libevdev from 1.4.4 to 1.5.9 instead of trying to make it work
with the updated headers.  This will be further updated.

Update devel/py-evdev from 0.5.0 to 0.8.1 instead of trying to make it work
