Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.

This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these
pkg-descr files.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

Update to 0.7.2.

"When editing a user's password or account expiration property, choosing cancel
or pressing ESC while editing the value manually would cause the value to be
blanked rather than preserved. This has been fixed and pressing ESC (or
choosing cancel) now preserves the value as expected.

Executing "bsdconfig foo" when LANG is set to "EN_US.ISO8859-1" produces a
non-i18n-compatible error message: "bsdconfig: foo: not found" (when it should
produce: "bsdconfig: foo: NOT FOUND"). This has been fixed by adding the
appropriate i18n messages and changing the code to use them.

Executing "bsdconfig -h" when LANG is set to an unknown language (for which
there are no bsdconfig localized language files), the output did not display
appropriately. This has been fixed.

Executing "bsdconfig timezone -h" (for example) when LANG is set to an unkown
language had similar issues to the above."

bsdconfig is a robust utility for configuring/managing various aspects of the
FreeBSD Operating System. Feature-highlights include (but are not limited to):
  - Modular, stable, efficient and i18n-compatible.
  - Easily maintained/extendable sh(1) source/syntax.
  - Works with both dialog(1) in base and Xdialog(1) from ports (x11/xdialog).
  - rc.conf(5) configuration/management based on sysutils/sysrc
  - Timezone configuration based on sysutils/tzdialog
  - Networking management based on sysutils/host-setup
