Install texinfo files (GNU info) into ${PREFIX}/share/info

After a discussion on the mailing list on moving manpages to
${PREFIX}/share/man for consistency with base where it is
installed in usr/share/man, it appeared the same should happen
to GNU info files which were installed under share in base and
not in ports.

Now texinfo is not in base on any of the supported version of FreeBSD
it is possible to proceed to this move and it is easier to do than
the manpage change.

Other benefit than consistency are less patching: all build tools but
cmake are expecting info files to be under share/info and cmake (patched here)
was having an exception for BSD so the patch makes FreeBSD case less
specific for them

Add preliminary support of tlmgr.

 - TLPDB and tlmgr.log are located in /var/db/tlpkg.

 - "tlmgr conf texmf" modifies /var/db/tlpkg/texmf.cnf.
   libkpathsea looks up it first if it exists and ignore the standard ones
   in PREFIX/share/texmf-dist/web2c/texmf.cnf or

 - "tlmgr update" can still break consistency of the installed texmf-*
   hierarchy by FreeBSD Ports Collection if it runs by root.

Update TeXLive to TL2015.

- print/texlive-infra was renamed with print/texlive-tlmgr.
  Note that currently tlmgr(1) does not work because of
  lack of TLPDB.  This will be fixed.

- Lua libraries used in LuaTeX are separated into
  devel/tex-libtexlua and devel/texlibtexluajit.
  USE_TEX supports them via keywords "texlua" and "texluajit".

- libsynctex is currently installed by devel/tex-web2c.
  This will be separated into a single port.

- Add graphics/libpotrace and use installed libpotrace
  and libharfbuzz.

Update TeXLive to 2014.

- Note that full support of configuration tools such as tlmgr and texconfig
  is not ready yet.

- Most of dviware now supports libpaper to choose the default papersize.
  Use paperconfig(8) utility or print/papersize-default-* packages.

- Some quite old macros of the age of latex209 have been removed, and
  there are user-visible/invisible incompatibilities.  Please send a report
  to or file a PR if you have trouble.

- do-texhash, do-fmtutil, do-updmap targets now run after post-install.

- Separate print/tex-dvipdfmx from print/texlive-base and add libpaper
  support.  dvipdfmx's default paper size can be set by
  ${LOCALBASE}/etc/papersize and/or PAPERSIZE environment variable as
  other programs like print/psutils do.

- Use absolute pathname in {fmtutil,texconfig,updmap}-sys programs because
  manually-installed and/or old TeXLive files can prevent them from
  working. [1]

- Fix pkg-plist in print/texlive-texmf.

- Remove DIST_SUBDIR from Mk/
