Bump PORTREVISION for ports depending on the canonical version of GCC
as defined in Mk/bsd.default-versions.mk which has moved from GCC 8.3
to GCC 9.1 under most circumstances now after revision 507371.

This includes ports
 - with USE_GCC=yes or USE_GCC=any,
 - with USES=fortran,
 - using Mk/bsd.octave.mk which in turn features USES=fortran, and
 - with USES=compiler specifying openmp, nestedfct, c11, c++0x, c++11-lang,
   c++11-lib, c++14-lang, c++17-lang, or gcc-c++11-lib
plus, everything INDEX-11 shows with a dependency on lang/gcc9 now.

SSP support has been added to ports with WITH_SSP for i386 and amd64
on FreeBSD 10, and amd64 on earlier versions.

SSP_UNSAFE is added to disable in a port if it fails to build, but
this should only be used in rare circumstances such as kernel modules.
Otherwise, the port may just be failing due to lack of respecting
LDFLAGS.

On FreeBSD 10, this uses an ldscript in /usr/lib/libc.so to pull in
libssp_nonshared.a to address issues linking on i386 [1].

On earlier FreeBSD versions the WITH_SSP knob will add -lssp_nonshared
to LDFLAGS on i386. This is not needed on amd64. However, several hundred
ports do not currently respect LDFLAGS, so this support is disabled currently
as it causes build failures if a dependency is looking for the stack_chk

The vast majority of pkg-descr files had the following format when they
had both lines:

Author: ...
WWW: ....

So standardize on that, and move them to the end of the file when necessary.

Also fix some more whitespace, and remove more "signature tags" of varying
forms, like -- name, etc.

s/AUTHOR/Author/

Update CONFIGURE_ARGS for how we pass CONFIGURE_TARGET to configure script.
Specifically, newer autoconf (> 2.13) has different semantic of the
configure target. In short, one should use --build=CONFIGURE_TARGET
instead of CONFIGURE_TARGET directly. Otherwise, you will get a warning
and the old semantic may be removed in later autoconf releases.

To workaround this issue, many ports hack the CONFIGURE_TARGET variable
so that it contains the ``--build='' prefix.

To solve this issue, under the fact that some ports still have
configure script generated by the old autoconf, we use runtime detection
in the do-configure target so that the proper argument can be used.

Changes to Mk/*:
 - Add runtime detection magic in bsd.port.mk

- 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.

Update to c-ares 1.3.2.
Add the optional ares_config_info patch from Unreal IRCD, on by default;
this is a step closer to building Unreal IRCD with the port version of
c-ares.

Build and install the shared c-ares library too, not just the static one.
This should help the build of libcurl on amd64, what with -fPIC and such.

Add c-ares 1.3.1, Daniel Stenberg's adopted version of the ares library
for asynchronous DNS resolving.  It was repo-copied from the dns/ares port.
