misc/seabios: Update to 1.16.0; use binutils binaries

Upstream release information:
https://www.seabios.org/Releases#SeaBIOS_1.15.0
https://www.seabios.org/Releases#SeaBIOS_1.16.0

When ports set USE_BINUTILS=yes, the environment is adjusted with, e.g.,
OBJDUMP=${LOCALBASE}/bin/objdump, so that binaries from devel/binutils
are used during the build.  SeaBIOS, however, ignores these environment
variables, so supply them to MAKE_ARGS.  This will fix the build when
/usr/bin/llvm-objdump is linked to /usr/bin/objdump.  See PR 267854.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

seabios: fix failure to find python

The failure has been reported by the automatic builders:

http://package19.nyi.freebsd.org/data/103i386-default-build-as-user/412304/logs/errors/seabios-1.9.1.log

This is because SeaBIOS doesn't have a configure phase and the paths of the
required build tools need to be passed to the make command when building.
