sysutils/acts: update to 1.2

Patch sample config file to include usr/home as most modern FreeBSD
configs have /home as a symlink to /usr/home. Without this users coule
be tricked into thinking they were successfully backing up their home
directory.

Add full path to tarsnap binary in sample config

If you run acts from cron it may fail without full path to tarsnap binary
due to cron not having /usr/local/bin in PATH by default.

Welcome acts to the ports tree

acts is a utility for managing Tarsnap backups which is written in plain
sh(1). This utility was praised in mwl's Tarsnap Mastery book, but was
somehow missing from our dear ports tree.

Now it's here so I can better manage my backups, and you should too!
