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.

- Force picks up readline and ncurses from base. This fixes build
  when devel/ncurses installed.
- Similar to python24, don't pick up ncursesw in python25. This results
  in both ncurses are linked into

Revert the default version of Python to 2.4 for the ports freeze
period.  Python 2.5 brought a vast range of incompatibility to a
large number of ports, so the python@ team will do more basic
compatibility work in a private repository and merge it later.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

- Update the main python version to 2.5.
  - Now, lang/python is just a meta-port which depends on lang/python25.
  - And all versions of Python ports have short version identifier in its
    package name; python25-2.5, python24-2.4.3 and etc.
  - Also you must upgrade all python modules after lang/python updated,
     cd /usr/ports/lang/python && make upgrade-site-packages

- Give maintainership of Python ports to the new python@ group which
  includes me, alexbl@ and others.
