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.

security/ Change crontab and add newsyslog

This update may break your install if you were using a symlink to
%%EXAMPLESDIR%%/ - that file is no longer installed. Instead,
a log rotation configuration is now installed to etc/cron.d/

The port now installs a log rotation file to etc/newsyslog.d/
and you you should update etc/newsyslog.d/ to suit your needs.
This file has long been part of the port, but was never installed.

Neither the log rotation nor the crontab are active until you remove the

While here, several portclippy updates

security/ Use .conf suffix for /usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/

Rename files intended for installation to /usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/
to end with a '.conf' suffix.

Proposed changes to /etc/newsyslog.conf will only include files from the
/usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/ directory which end with '.conf' and do
not beginning with a '.' character.
