editors/mg: add -static slave installed as /rescue/mg

When recovering from a broken rtld(1) one may want a visual editor that
feels like Emacs. ee(1) isn't under /rescue, and its Emacs keys support
lacks even C-x C-c (save-buffers-kill-emacs).

editors/mg: Update to 20180927

This brings mg up to what will be in OpenBSD 6.4.

Simplify port by moving to Brian Callahan's portable mg release.
It has a configure script to detect OS features and it hopefully
won't break building mg on FreeBSD for no reason.
