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.

lang/lua53: update to 5.3.6

This release fixes all bugs listed here: https://www.lua.org/bugs.html#5.3.5

While we're here, do some cleanup work in preparation for an impending
lang/lua54 port:

- Various reordering to appease portclippy
- The patch to src/Makefile has been renamed to match the standard naming
  convention since it was relatively close
- Use ${LUA_VER_STR} in place of again writing out the version string
- Use various LUA_* substitutions in the plist to reduce change on new
  versions

The latter two have actually been backported from the submitted lua54 port
in D14709, rather than being included in the original submission, to make
the diff between lang/lua53 and lang/lua54 more obvious.

USES=lua gained flavors.

Ports using USES=lua:module or lua:flavors will be flavored.  A range of
supported lua versions can be set using XX-YY (or XX-, or -YY, or simply ZZ)
for ports not supporting all lua versions.

USES=lua sets LUA_FLAVOR that needs to be used on all dependencies of
flavored lua ports, in a similar way as PHP or Python flavors.

lang/lua53: Add new MAINTAINER, Add bug fix patches

The Lua team maintains a list of bugs found in each release of Lua since
4.0 [1] with examples that show the bug and a patch when the fix is
available.

This patch adds all three bug fixes available so far. A fourth bug fix
should be made available soon to fix a recently-found bug in coroutines.

To make it easier to track changes for each patch, a GitHub repository
[2] has been created with the Lua distribution and patches so they can
be referenced by commit id.

- Pass MAINTAINER'ship to Submitter, who is also a member of the NetBSD
  Lua team. (Thanks!)

Use -fPIC on all arches; lua builds the object files into a shared lib.

Since the object files get built into a shared lib, using -fPIC on all
arches is the right thing to do, instead of adding it to each new arch that
comes along which doesn't accidentally allow non-PIC modules in shared libs.

Fix CFLAGS handling in lua53 patches.

The ?= assignment of CFLAGS (not present in earlier lua5x patches) results
in MYCFLAGS, passed from the port makefile, never getting assigned to CFLAGS
during the lua build. The result is a copy of lua that has none of the posix
support functions in it.

CFLAGS set in the outer environment by the user or make.conf get passed in
via the MYCFLAGS mechanism, so remove the -O2 and let the outer environment
control optimization level.
