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.

mail/archivemail: Limit to Python 2.7, level up port compliance

archivemail fails to build with Python 3.x [1]:

    print too_old_error
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean

Limit to Python 2.7 accordingly.

While I'm here, level up port compliance:

  - Update COMMENT to match
  - Use distutils/autoplist/concurrent (package uses a Remove
    NO_BUILD, do-install target, amend pkg-plist accordingly.
  - Patch to install man pages in /usr/local not /usr/local/share
  - Add test target to assist QA

- Update to 0.6.2
- Install script via port's Makefile instead of USE_PYDISTUTILS
- Manual page is no longer included in the distribution;
  building it from SGML source requires Jade and docbook2man;
  in order to avoid adding quite heavy dependecies for this simple
  utility, we now install SGML and associated Makefile to DOCSDIR
  for those who want to build the man page manually

  /usr/local/bin/archivemail:760: SyntaxWarning: assignment to None
    (None, last_dir) = os.path.split(os.path.dirname(

  The patch was also submitted to upstream (using SF's bug tracking system).
