Make ninja opt-out in

Using ninja instead of make (1) can lead to significant speed ups while
Therefore switch from having the ninja generator opt-in to having it opt-out.

Previously cmake-ports that wanted to use ninja could set
now, ports that do not work with ninja can set
    cmake:<existing args>,noninja
Note, that needing this should be an exception and most often points to a broken
cmake of the port.

The ports using cmake were modified
* removed USES=gmake, if ninja is used
* removed MAKE_ARGS, if ninja is used
* added the cmake-argument noninja if necessary

Add "baloofiles" to the list of exported CMake libraries.

In practice, this means linking against "baloofiles" in CMake passes
"/full/path/to/" instead of "-lbaloofiles" to the linker. The
latter may fail if -L/full/path/to is not passed as well.

Introduce new extensible virtual categories for KDE

A lot of KDE Ports share MASTERSITES, LICENSE and so one, as they are
released as a bundle upstream, however, there was not really a clean
way to share this information.

Using these new categories, we can simplify the Makefiles for the diverse
KDE ports.
At the moment we support the virtual category
	* kde-kde4
In the future, this will be extended to
	* kde-frameworks
	* kde-plasma
	* kde-applications

x11/kde4: update to kdelibs version 4.14.10

This is based on the area51 testing repository of the KDE-FreeBSD
project, containing work by Raphael Kubo da Costa, Tobias Berner,
Ralf Nolden, Adriaan de Groot and probably many more from the KDE

KDE4 releases have fallen into three tracks now that KDE4 is pretty
much end-of-life upstream. There's the libraries, the workspace
(Plasma4) and applications.

This patch introduces KDE4_KDELIBS_VERSION to track library releases,
which are still done infrequently. It bumps the workspace version.
It leaves applications alone. This has an effect on some applications
pkg-plists where library version numbers need to be changed. Other
than that it's supposed to be a minor upgrade, which opens the doors
for more reorganization and getting KDE Frameworks 5 in.

Change header installation location for kdelibs4-based ports.

Install x11/kdelibs4's headers into include/kde4 instead of include (which
consequently causes several other ports to have their installation paths
changed too).

The idea behind this is to reduce path conflicts between KDE4 ports and the
upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 ports that will be installed into include/KF5. If
we continue installing the KDE4 headers into include/, we can end up in a
situation like this:

    c++ [...] -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/include/KF5 file.cpp

If the KDE4 and KF5 versions of a port have the same headers, the KDE4 port
will unintentionally be picked up first and the build will fail.
