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.

Make it so that the default Perl is always called perl5.

- Move Perl's man1 files along with its man3 files.
- Move where Perl installs its modules man1 pages.
- Convert the ports installing man1 pages.
- Make different Perl versions installable at the same time.
  Though you should note that only the default version can be used to
  install Perl modules, and the non default Perl versions cannot use the
  modules installed via ports if they contain .so as they are installed
  in a version specific directory.

To ease up with future upgrades, move PERL_VERSION into a separate file.

While there, remove 8.4 support, and do some cleanup.

Retire BSDPAN.

It was never converted to pkg, and starting with Perl 5.18 gives out
annoying warnings.

- Bring back the .packlist files, many people need them, they will
  automatically added to the plists.
- Add soname to and rename it to, for instance To keep software linked with it working, provide a symlink.
- Rollback Perl's man page location change, it creates conflicts for the few
  modules that ship with Perl and are in the ports tree.

Change the way Perl modules are installed, update the default Perl to 5.18.

Before, we had:

  site_perl :           lib/perl5/site_perl/5.18
  site_perl/perl_arch : lib/perl5/site_perl/5.18/mach
  perl_man3 :           lib/perl5/5.18/man/man3

Now we have:

  site_perl : lib/perl5/site_perl
  site_arch : lib/perl5/site_perl/mach/5.18
  perl_man3 : lib/perl5/site_perl/man/man3

Modules without any .so will be installed at the same place regardless of the
Perl version, minimizing the upgrade when the major Perl version is changed.
It uses a version dependent directory for modules with compiled bits.

As PERL_ARCH is no longer needed in plists, it has been removed from

The USE_PERL5=fixpacklist keyword is removed, the .packlist file is now
always removed, as is perllocal.pod.

The old site_perl and site_perl/arch directories have been kept in the
default Perl @INC for all Perl ports, and will be phased out as these old
Perl versions expire.

lang/perl5*: Remove absolute path to makewhatis in pkg-plist

Generally absolutely paths are not used with @exec in pkg-plist.
In this case, the path /usr/bin/makewhatis doesn't work on DragonFly
where the binary is located at /usr/sbin/makewhatis.  Removing the
full path is a no-op on FreeBSD and fixes perl man page installation
on DragonFly.  No revbump required.
