Force numerous ports that fail to build with clang over to instead always
rely on gcc.  The patch uses the new USE_GCC=any code in Mk/bsd.gcc.mk to
accomplish this.

The ports chosen were ports that blocked 2 or more ports from building with
clang.  (There are several hundred other ports that still fail to build with
clang, even with this patch.  This is merely one step along the way.)

Those interested in fixing these ports with clang, and have clang as their
default compiler, can simply set FORCE_BASE_CC_FOR_TESTING=yes.

For those who have gcc as their default compiler, this change is believed
to cause no change.

Hat:		portmgr
Tested with:	multiple runs on amd64-8-exp-bcm and 9-exp-clang, with various
		combinations of patch/no-patch and flag settings.

nectar points out that there are still ports in the tree that depend on
metamail: mail/exmh2 (and thus japanese/exmh2), and mail/rmime.  Since
I am not sure what the development status of those ports are, I am going
to remove the expiration date -- but with some trepidation, leave the
deprecated tag.

Although it pains me to do this (look at the listing of the directory
as to why :-) ), the distfile survey reports that Nathaniel's original
site for this software is long gone.  A Google search shows the mirror
that I added to be the best option, and that the most recent distfile is
from 1994.  The only other links refer to security problems; although
all the known ones have been fixed, Debian claims that:

  We have been devoting some effort to trying to avoid shipping metamail
  in the future.  It became unmaintainable and these are probably not the
  last of the vulnerabilities.

Accordingly, mark it as 'deprecated'.  If anyone is using this code,
they should prepare to adopt the port and address any security concerns
going forward.
