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.

Update to 5.8.6.  Also:

- redirect output from h2ph to /dev/null [1];
- fix File::Path insecure file/directory permissions [2];
  this resolves CAN-2004-0452
- for OSVERSION < 500036, create symlinks in /usr/bin not only for
  perl and suidperl, but also for a2p, c2ph, find2perl, h2ph, h2xs,
  perlbug, perlcc, perldoc, pl2pm, pod2html, pod2latex, pod2man,
  pod2text, s2p, and splain;  perl and suidperl are still enough for
  more recent FreeBSD versions [3];
- clean up created symlinks upon deinstallation [4];
- try to cleanup symlinks created by older versions of lang/perl5 and
  lang/perl5.8, during both installation and deinstallation [5];
- added support for DISABLE_BSDPAN environment variable [6];
- be explicit about use.perl usage after installation of 4.X systems
- respect __MAKE_CONF partially (the build-time value is used) [8];
- fix threaded build - respect PTHREAD_CFLAGS and PTHREAD_LIBS [9].
- use.perl is now the same as pkg-install is now the same as
  pkg-deinstall;  apart from the changes already mentioned above, this
  is a shell script now;
- use.perl's logic is also simplified in several ways [10];
- fix a BSDPAN bug [11].

Outstanding issues: Module::Build support for BSDPAN, SU_CMD support (PR
70831), PR 64963 (partially), and anything else that I forgot.

   lib/perl5/PERL_VER/perl/man/man3, to eliminate file conflicts
   with p5 ports for modules included with perl.
5. Use PREFIX/SITE_PERL_REL instead of SITE_PERL in the Makefile.
6. Switch to bzipped sources.

Respect OSVERSION in the pkg-install script.  This allows package building
tinderboxes to do the righ thing reagrding Perl in a chroot/jail environment
regardless of the underlying host OS version.

This fixes a little bug introduced in r1.8.

When installing with pkg_add(1), the ${SITE_PERL} directory was not created
causing system headers not to be perlified and installed by h2ph.  This made
some things break in very mysterious ways.

The pkg-install script used by pkg_add(1) doesn't know about the many special
variables in, so it shouldn't try to rely on them.

Update to 5.8.1.


Make suidperl optional (ENABLE_SUIDPERL knob).  Switch to perlmalloc by
default, unless threaded perl is built, to improve performance.
Modernize pkg-plist (switch to SITE_PERL where possible).  Update WWW.

Many thanks to foxfair who prepared most of this update.
