Description:
An interpreter for all Infocom games. Complies with standard 1.0 of Graham Nelson's specification. Frotz runs text adventures which come in so-called story files: ZORK1.DAT, TRINITY.DAT, CURSES.Z5, JIGSAW.Z8, ARTHUR.ZIP etc. It is possible to play Atari ST, Amiga or Macintosh games on your computer once you manage to transfer the story files. There is an increasing number of new games available on the Internet. Check the if-archive at http://ifarchive.org/

bsd.sites.mk: Update all ports using USE_GITLAB

Replace GL_COMMIT by GL_TAGNAME in all ports. The new GL_TAGNAME is
backwards-compatible (accepting any commit hash as before), but also
understands an actual tag name. Moving to tag names where appropriate is
left to individual ports' maintainers.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

Regenerate all distfiles using gitlab as source.

This regeneration is required as the new gitlab version changed
the address and the directory the source files can be downloaded.

This commit also applies some small fixes to make sure all ports using
gitlab are buildable.

- Release ports maintained by games@

games@ team is quite small and inactive, so ports currently assigned
to it cannot be assumed as properly maintained. To not cause confusion
by making it look otherwise, and also to allow and promote adoption
by individual maintainers, release these ports back to the pool. Note
that this does not change the fact that games@ team still takes care
of these ports to excent of its capabilities.
