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.

Mark as not-for !x86.

These ports fail to build on at least powerpc64; plus, these aging PCI
and/or CardBus cards are unlikely to be of use on other tier-2 archs.

[bwn] add missing initvals for rev11 LP PHY.

We needed both the initvals and the band-switch initvals for rev11.
This was required for one of my BCM LP NICs.

[bwn] Initial support for the v5 firmware

This is just to support the initial v5 firmware for one of the PHY-N
NICs I'm going to do some development.

It only pulls out the specific v5 mimo firmware for the BCM4312 NIC
I am playing with; I'm adding it so we at least have the framework
to pull things out of the v5 firmware.

The existing NICs still use v4 firmware and I don't plan on changing
that for some time as bwn(4) doesn't yet support the newer firmware API
and descriptor layouts.

Convert to USES=kmod, which removes duplicated code and ensures that all
required steps are followed.

There are no user-visible changes.  The exception is multimedia/ptx-kmod,
which now installs the kernel module into /boot/modules instead of
${PREFIX}/libexec/${PORTNAME}, this was something USES=kmod cannot handle.
