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.

Enable the UDEV backend by default, instead of the DEVD backend, for
autoconfiguration of input devices on FreeBSD 12 and later.
FreeBSD 11 lacks the needed support in base and will keep on using the DEVD
Support for the HAL backend is dropped completely, it has been deprecated

net/tigervnc-{server,viewer}: Update to 1.10.0

Lots of changes have been made since the last release, but the highlights are:

* The clipboard now supports full Unicode in the native viewer, WinVNC and
* The native client will now respect the system trust store when verifying
server certificates
* Improved compatibility with VMware's VNC server
* Improved compatibility with some input methods on macOS
* Improvements to the automatic "repair" of JPEG artefacts
* Better handling of the Alt keys in some corner cases
* The Java web server has been removed as applets are no longer support by most
* x0vncserver can now be configured to only allow local connections
* x0vncserver has received fixes for when only part of the display is shared
* Polling is now default in WinVNC as that works better for most
