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.

To use the web server cgi script, you must set "get_iplayer_enable="YES" in "/etc/rc.conf", and set "get_iplayer_chdir" to a valid directory to store configuration files and downloads. If "get_iplayer_chdir" is unset, the "get_iplayer" home directory is used. In the latter case you can set the home directory to (eg) '/home/get_iplayer", with: pw usermod get_iplayer -m -M 750 -k /var/empty -d /home/get_iplayer

multimedia/get_iplayer: update to 3.35, pet portclippy

Changelog:
* Fixed a bug introduced in v3.32 that caused tagging failures with a
"Wide character" error when --tag-only-filename contained non-ASCII
characters.
* Adapted for changes to iPlayer site that caused unwanted items to be
downloaded with --pid-recursive when the "More like this" listings for
CBBC/CBeebies programmes contained links to individual episodes rather
than to series.
* Corrected a typo in option specs that caused a "duplicate specification"
warning when Getopt::Long Perl module >= 2.55.

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.

multimedia/get_iplayer: Update to 3.30

ChangeLog:
https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer/wiki/release330to339#release330

* Fixed a bug that produced audio-only downloads for some programmes when FHD
  quality was requested but no 1080p video was available.
* Progress display for FHD downloads only now iterates towards a closer
  approximation of final file size. FHD file size estimates shown with
  --info remain very inaccurate.

multimedia/get_iplayer: Fix rc.d script and typo in pkg-message

The latest version of get_iplayer (ports r541176) introduced the following code:

export HOME="$get_iplayer_chdir"
cd "$HOME" || exit 1

This is always executed irrespective of rcvar get_iplayer_enable. The default
homedir for the get_iplayer user is /nonexistent. Therefore, upon each boot,
the script would emit the following error:

cd: /nonexistent: No such file or directory

with no indication of the source of the error.
