Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.

This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these
pkg-descr files.

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/ocaml-ocamlbuild: fix install in presence of `devel/ocaml-findlib'

If ocamlfind(1) is installed, its output of `printconf destdir' is used
as OCAMLBUILD_LIBDIR, which does not match OCAML_LIBDIR and is actually
not a single directory, but colon-separated path list.  Specify correct
destination explicitly to avoid this type of side effects.  While at it,
hook the test suite to our framework.

Update OCaml to version 4.05.0 (this is the last version where strings
are unsafe by default, which is the main motivation why it was picked,
but not the very latest one) and synchronize the rest of the stack and
dependent ports with it, particularly:

  - Update `devel/ocaml-ocamlbuild' to version 0.14.0 and unbreak,
    register build dependency on all ports that require it (should
    be part of USE_OCAML, but we do not want to make any Mk-related
    changes the for time being)
  - Update `devel/ocaml-camlp4' to version 4.05+2
  - Update `devel/ocaml-camlp5' to version 7.07 (the project had
    moved to GitHub)
  - Mark `devel/ocaml-deriving-ocsigen' as BROKEN for now, it is
    very outdated and requires quite a lot of work
  - Update `x11-toolkits/ocaml-labltk' to version 8.06.3

Add the port of OCamlbuild, generic build tool that has built-in rules for
building OCaml library and programs.

Currently unused in the ports tree, committing it early would allow for a
cleaner diff for the upcoming OCaml update.
