Expect is a program that performs programmed dialogue with other
interactive programs.  It is briefly described by its man page, expect(1).

It uses pseudo-tty's to control the child processes, so it is not affected
by programs that refuse to read from stdin or pipes. (eg: passwd(1) etc).

lang/expect: install example scripts and manpages in the proper location

This commit changes the location of the example scripts and manpages. They are
now installed in the proper PREFIX/bin and PREFIX/man/man1 - so they are in
path and reachable by man(1) - and are renamed with an expect_ prefix to avoid
conflicts due to their common names.

A pkg-message has been added to notify users of this change. Portrevision has
been bumped.

lang/expect: fix configuration phase fs violation

The "long file names" support check touches /usr/local/lib which is a
file system violation.  The value is always "yes", so just pass it as

Refer to the distfile with an explicit version number instead of   invariably
downloading the latest one.  This (a) unbreaks this port   until somebody
updates it to 5.33.0, and (b) prevents this port from   automatically being
