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.

FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of both real and complex data, and of arbitrary input size. We believe that FFTW, which is free software, should become the FFT library of choice for most applications. Our benchmarks, performed on a variety of platforms, show that FFTW's performance is typically superior to that of other publicly available FFT software. Moreover, FFTW's performance is portable: the program will perform well on most architectures without modification. The FFTW package was developed at MIT by Matteo Frigo and Steven G. Johnson. Please send email to so that we can keep track of users and send you information about new releases. The latest version of FFTW, benchmarks, links, and other information can be found at the FFTW home page.

- After digging into the Makefile and configure for fftw3 I discovered
  that USE_FORTRAN was only used to determine what name mangling scheme
  it had to use to compile the shim libs for fortran, but compiling everything
  using 'C' anyway.
  With this diff, the slave ports fftw3-long-fortran, fftw3-float-fortran
  and fftw3-fortran disapear since the shims are always built, without
  necessitating the use of a USE_FORTRAN.
