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.

Use '@stopdaemon' command recently introduced.

Actually, vmware-guestd4 package content is changed but I don't want to
bump the version -- it is used only in uninstallation phase (and VMware
Workstation 4.x is no longer updated so no uninstallation will be needed.)

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.

Fix some errors, including:

- Build fix when WITH_VMWARE_GTK is set.
- Reorder pkg-plist so that @unexec successfully done.
- Create directories for server modules, since xserver may not be installed.

Even though this makes no "installed" content change, but bump
PORTREVISION since pkg-plist/ are changed.

Move /etc/vmware-tools/* files to vmware-tools5, since VMware Player
that is bundled with VMware Workstation 5.5 fails to suspend, warns
on poweron/resume.

Bump PORTREVISION for both vmware-tools5 and vmware-guestd5.

Dear VMware Workstation users around the world, here is an upgrade of
VMware Workstation FreeBSD-guest related ports for VMware Workstation
5.5.0 build 18463.

New features are:

- Spell "VMware Workstation" appropriately.
        There are much VMware products, it would be the time that I have
        to spell VMware Workstation as VMware Workstation.
- Support FreeBSD/amd64 since 64-bit binaries are provided from VMware.
        I don't test any of 64-bit related portion, since I have no
        FreeBSD/amd64 machine.  If something trouble please email me.
- New variable "WITH_VMWARE_GTK" (emulators/vmware-tools5)
        Install gtk version of VMware Tools if defined
        (add more dependencies on other gtk-related ports)
- New variable "WITH_VMWARE_VMXNET" (emulators/vmware-guestd5)
        Install "vmxnet.ko" kernel module (vmxnet driver) if defined
                - shutdown FreeBSD guest VM
                - add following line to FreeBSD guest VM config file
                - Boot FreeBSD guest VM
                - load vmxnet.ko kernel module
                - ifconfig vxn0 ...
        New rc.conf variable "vmware_guest_vmxnet_enable" is also added
        to to load kernel module at startup.  However,
        ${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d/ run _after_ /etc/rc.d/netif,
        so it maybe too late to load here...
        Note that vmxnet.ko supports FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE or later, and
        5.3-RELEASE and later (as VMware said).  I've confirmed that
        recent 7-current got 100% instant panic if vmxnet.ko is loaded.
- "vmware_guest_kmod_enable" is renamed to "vmware_guest_vmmemctl_enable"
        Now this ports has two kernel modules now, old name is not
        appropriate one, hard to understand this variable is for which
        kernel module.  I also put backward compatibility code, but users
        of vmware_guest_kmod_enable please change variable name.

Bugfixes are:

- Resolve conflicts on ${PREFIX}/share/vmware-tools.
        Unfortunately both vmware-guestd5 and vmware-tools5 installs
        files to ${PREFIX}/share/vmware-tools directory.  Since this
        directory is only for vmware-tools, vmware-guestd5 doesn't do
        anything for now.
- WWW: line in pkg-descr points bogus page.
- Add note that there's official VMware Tools installer, and what is the
  difference between the two.

Finally, as usual, bump PORTVERSION.
