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.

Set LC_CTYPE to 'C' for ${REINPLACE_CMD}, since if LC_CTYPE is set to
others (such as ja_JP.eucJP), replacing string may fail.

No bumps, since nothing changed if REINPLACE_CMD works as expected.

Follow the new world order: use '' feature.
        - repocopy to (by portmgr)
        - remove
        - remove entry from pkg-plist
        - update Makefile

It is intensional that I do NOT bump PORTREVISION by this commit, since
any executable is not changed, and startup script itself is also NOT
changed, only the filename is changed.  I do not want to bother users
to update their port by this non-functional change.

If you have any reasonable reason to bump PORTREVISION, let me know, and
I'll update the version asap.

o Make sure that /etc/vmware-tools is created as symlink pointing out to
  ${PREFIX}/share/vmware-tools. And create three symlinks to true(1) there
  (poweroff-vm-default, poweron-vm-default, suspend-vm-default), which makes
  it possible to shutdown or reboot guest FreeBSD system cleanly at the request
  of the host. vmware-guestd expects those binaries/scripts to be present.

o Use `shutdown -p now' instead of `shutdown -h now', which in the case of
  vmware allows to avoid spinning host CPU after shutdown.

o Patch vmware-checkvm, so that it traps proper signal (SIGBUS not SIGSEGV).
  Apparently checkvm utility have not been tested on FreeBSD (apart from the
  fact that it compiles).

Fix kernel module build.

Since 'OBJS=' line is inserted _after_, OBJS value is
overridden by the line (ahh...)  Hopefully, 'OBJS=' line is inserted
after 'SRCS=' line, but there's no handy way I suppose (sed's command
'i' requires to follow a newline, but how can I put a newline within
a one line?)

Since the contents (actually, kernel module) are changed,

Kill Linux-guest specific bogus messages by vmware-guestd.

In fact, the message was killed in old startup script.  While converting
to the script for RCng era, I just forget to do that.  I don't know that
"command_args" variable is ok in this case , but /etc/rc.d/ipxrouted
and /etc/rc.d/ntpdate already did it so it seems there's no problem.

Since the script is changed, bump PORTREVISION.

Update to 4.5.1 build 7568, with lots of cleanup.

- USE_RC_SUBR.  Inspired by ports/net/dtcpclient (thanks ume-san).
        Since now, loading kernel modules and/or start vmware-guestd can
        be tweaked via following rc.conf variables:
                * vmware_guestd_enable (default to YES)
                * vmware_guest_kmod_enable (default to NO) is removed; both are handled by a single
        shell script,
- Bulid kernel module iff kernel source files are available.
        This check is just a static checking of /usr/src/sys/Makefile.
        It would be even better that '/usr/src' can be changed to other
        place, but I believe that most user puts a source code under /usr/src,
        or other places and set a symlink to there.  If it hits you badly,
        I'm willing to apply your patch to fix(?) it.
- If this ports is used by ports/emulators/vmware-tools4, install XFree86
  server modules, vmware_drv.o and vmmouse_drv.o.
        The vmware_drv.o is a (virtual) graphic chip driver.  I believe that
        if you have already installed XFree86 4.3.0, it should be the same
        one but compiled on XFree86  I've confirmed that it should
        work with XFree86 4.3.0 server.

        The vmmouse_drv.o is a mouse driver, use it instead of default
        mouse driver, mouse_drv.o.  It works, but if my test is correct,
        it doesn't support Emulate3Buttons.  Use with care.

        Both drivers are installed to appropriate directory, but renamed
        (append '_VMware' to the filename) to avoid any conflicts to other
        ports (especially ports/x11/XFree86*).

P.S.: Happy version 4.5.1, ACPI is enabled by default for FreeBSD guest OS.

Update VMware Tools for 4.0.1 build-5289, the latest version of VMware

This commit makes vmware-tools4 a slave port of vmware-guestd4, since
both are made from the same tarball, and it would be easy to maintain.
Vmware-guestd4 also installs a kernel module named vmmemctl; you may
want to kldload(8) it with a shell script under rc.d/ directory.

VMware Workstation 4.0.1 does fix "jumping the pointer" bug (yeah, thanks
VMware developer team).  This means that you do not have to install
linux-vmware-toolbox4.  However, it can be used as it should be, I
do not disable and/or remove this port.

Update VMware-related tools to the of VMware Workstation 4.0.0 build-4460
(after repocopying old ones, thank you joe).

It seems that VMware does not provide a new version of guest tools
for VMware 4.x to FreeBSD guest, but it would be better to add these
ports, since users will know FreeBSD runs on VMware 4.x.

I've also add vmware-toolbox port for VMware 4.x, which is for Linux
guest.  In VMware 3.x, we FreeBSD guest user are happy to use FreeBSD
version of vmware-toolbox so we don't need the Linux version.  However,
at least my VMs, FreeBSD version's vmware-toolbox causes X pointer a
bumpy one (pointer moves every seconds); it is unusable.  Linux version
seems OK for me, so if you have seen such behavior, please try
linux-vmware-toolbox4 instead.

Old ports cleanup will come later.
