MASTER_SITES cleanup.

- Replace ${MASTER_SITE_FOO} with FOO.
- Merge MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR into MASTER_SITES when possible. (This means 99.9%
  of the time.)
- Remove occurrences of MASTER_SITE_LOCAL when no subdirectory was present and
  no hint of what it should be was present.
- Fix some logic.
- And generally, make things more simple and easy to understand.

While there, add magic values to the FESTIVAL, GENTOO, GIMP, GNUPG, QT and
SAMBA macros.

Also, replace some EXTRACT_SUFX occurences with USES=tar:*.

In the rc.d scripts, change assignments to rcvar to use the
literal name_enable wherever possible, and ${name}_enable
when it's not, to prepare for the demise of set_rcvar().

In cases where I had to hand-edit unusual instances also
modify formatting slightly to be more uniform (and in
some cases, correct). This includes adding some $FreeBSD$
tags, and most importantly moving rcvar= to right after
name= so it's clear that one is derived from the other.

- Ever since this port was converted to use a rc.d startup it announces
  the uploading of the microcode. Printing this out via the framebuffer
  turned out to sometimes being delayed until during the upload of the
  microcode to it, resulting in a concurrent access which freezes the
  machine. So change afbinit(8) to no longer announce the upload. Of
  course the proper way to solve this would be to do the upload in the
  kernel with proper locking, if the licenses of both the afbinit(8)
  code and the microcode allowed.
- Re-read the board type after uploading the microcode so the right one
  is displayed.
- Fix GCC4 warnings.

Add afbinit, a tool to load the microcode firmware onto Sun Microsystem
AFB Graphics Accelerators aka Sun Microsystems Elite 3D. The microcode
is necessary if you want to run XFree86 with acceleration on these cards.
The microcode in itself has to be obtained from an existing SunOS/Solaris
installation.
