Mega-patch to cleanup the ports infrastructure regarding our linux bits:
  - USE_LINUX now implies NO_FILTER_SHLIBS=yes. It also doesn't use FreeBSD
    tools to strip binaries anymore, so it's not neccesary anymore to override
  - USE_LINUX_PREFIX implies NO_MTREE now.
  - In the USE_LINUX case, USE_XLIB now depends upon the linux X11 libraries
    instead upon the native FreeBSD libraries.
  - The variable LINUX_BASE_PORT contains a string which is suitable as an
    item in *_DEPENDS, so if a port BATCH_DEPENDS or FETCH_DEPENDS upon the
    default (or overriden) linux base, ${LINUX_BASE_PORT} should be used
    instead of a hardcoded reference.
  - Change all ports to comply to the "new world order".
  - The Ports Collection now allows to override the default linux_base port.
    Specify e.g. OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=rh-9 in /etc/make.conf to use
    ${PORTSDIR}/emulators/linux_base-rh-9 (the logic is to use
  - If USE_LINUX or OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE doesn't point to an existing linux_base
    port and if USE_LINUX isn't set to "yes" (case insensitive), the port will
    be marked as IGNORE. [1]
  - Readd USE_LINUX knobs into several ports and make several uses of a
    conditional dependency ("USE_LINUX?=") into an unconditional one
    ("USE_LINUX=") which where removed/changed by Trevor to allow the use of
    alternative linux_base ports. While this is a nice goal, the implementation
    resulted in missing dependencies. The OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT knob
    in this commit is supposed to fix the problem while keeping the feature.
    Basicaly this includes a backout of Trevor's commit, to prevent confusion
    I mention it here explicitely.
  - Use the correct prefix (X11- instead of LOCAL- or LINUX-) for some ports.
    Chase dependencies for this.
  - Changes to make linux_devtools installable on amd64, remove some stray
    device nodes (they don't work on recent OS versions and aren't really
  - Make linux_base-8 PREFIX clean and remove some stray device nodes.
    Additionally tell a little bit more about how to setup NIS/YP [2].
  - Update the PGSQL dependency in the linux-opengroupware port to a recent
    version (the old one isn't available anymore), I don't know if this
    works (at least it isn't more broken than before).
  - Use PREFIX/usr/share/doc instead of PREFIX/usr/doc in the divx4linux
    ports, the former path exists already and gets populated by other
    packages too (PREFIX=LINUXPREFIX!).
  - Fix some obvious (non-linuxolator) bugs in some linux ports while being
  - Bump PORTREVISION where neccesary.

Install a symlink for ${LOCALBASE}/bin/acroread, too (in adddition to
acroread7).  This resolves the biggest complaint about the new
acroread port.  In case an acroread5 port will appear, it then needs
to either be marked as CONFLICT with acroread7, or it should not
install the same symlink, too.  This should fix all other ports that
depend on the name "acroread" for the executable.

Depend the port on linux-XFree86-libs, as the most recent versions of
linux_base do no longer contain the X11 libraries.  For older versions
of linux_base, this might cause a conflict, but I believe these older
versions are incompatible with the linux-gtk2 prerequisite anyway.

Disable the PPKLite plug-in as we do not want another dependency (on
linux-openldap-libraries where we don't even have a port for).  This
is done by chmod 0'ing the plug-in, so anyone interested in it can
easily get it alive again.  That way, the annoying popup message at
startup is avoided.

Not resolved: I'd rather leave it to the maintainer to decide whether
and how the installation should go to ${LOCALBASE} instead of
${LINUXBASE}.  Technically, I see the description for LINUXBASE in
${PORTSDIR}/Mk/ fit here, so this is not strictly a
violation of policy.

Say hello to the linux mega patch, it consolidates our linux bits a
little bit and allows to proceed to a more recent linux_base from
a stable (read as: the major bugs should be ironed out or identified
and most linux ports build just fine) source.

It also allows to ship 4.11 with a working linuxolator (the EOLed
linux_base is marked forbidden because of a security hole).

This is a major update, please read UPDATING (and CHANGES if you
develop linux ports).

 - change the default linux_base from v7 to v8
 - add a newer freetype to linux_base-8 for nicer fonts display [1]
 - don't let cpio use hardlinks in the linux_base-8 port to quiet some
   warnings in some cases [2]
 - fix a cut&past error in the linux_base-8 pkg-install script [3]
 - convert the binary knob "USE_LINUX" to a version specifier, e.g.
   USE_LINUX=<value> specifies a dependency upon
   emulators/linux_base-<value>, exceptions are a value of "7" (which
   does what you want and adds a dependency to linux_base) and any
   value without a corresponding port in
   PORTSDIR/emulators/linux_base-<value> (which adds a dependency to
   the default linux_base)
 - don't implicitly add USE_LINUX with the USE_LINUX_PREFIX knob,
   this allows us to use the USE_LINUX_PREFIX knob for linux_base and
   paves the way for splitting up future linux base ports into
   individual pieces
 - remove RESTRICTED from some GPL licensed ports, even when we only
   distribute binaries, we get them from official linux sites, so
   anyone can grab them there if he needs to
 - add a dependency upon the linux X11 bits where necessary (based upon
 - don't use USE_X_PREFIX in some linux ports since it adds a dependency
   to the FreeBSD X11 libs, as a workaround use PREFIX?= (the clean
   solution would be to remove the implicit USE_XLIB from USE_X_PREFIX)
 - bump the portrevision of the linux ports ("better safe than sorry"
 - pass maintainership of the important linux infrastructure to a
   mailinglist, hijack freebsd-emulation@ for this purpose (if somebody
   doesn't like this: tell us your bikeshed color at freebsd-emulation@,
   my color would be "linuxolator@" in case someone cares...)
 - add a pkg-install script for linux-fontconfig, but don't use it;
   everything should work without it (the FreeBSD fc-cache program should
   do all the work), but in case we need it we just need to decomment the
   pkg-install part in the Makefile
 - fix some dependencies
 - fix some bugs
 - add some static plists
 - unbreak the ports with dependecies to more than one linux_base

This also fixes some ports which are marked BROKEN because of dependencies
to v7 and v8 of linux_base at the same time.

Known bugs:
 - the linux-mesa and linux-devtools ports install libGL*.so symlinks
 - some "minor" plist bugs (e.g.{conf,cache} are modified by
   the linux X11 port, so linx_Base-8 moans at deinstall time)

Future work (interested souls should coordinate with freebsd-emulation@):
 - add some kind of USE_LINUX_X11 knob to streamline the X11 dependencies,
   or modify the behavior of USE_XLIB in the USE_LINUX case
   AFAIK trevor has some patches.
 - make USE_XLIB and USE_X_PREFIX orthogonal to be able to get rid of
   the PREFIX?= workaround in some linux ports
   Should be discussed/coordinated on/with x11@.
 - move the RPM bits from x11-toolkits/linux-gtk/Makefile to PORTSDIR/Mk/
 - update to a more recent linux base
