Remove the sysutils/diskprep port.  It was marked DEPRECATED last August
when the last known system using it was decomissioned.

Switch from USE_RCORDER to USE_RC_SUBR as prodded by dougb.
Note: To preserve the prior functionality it is recommended that
early_late_divider be set to something VERY early in the boot process
such as sysctl.

I suspect no one by myself actually used this port in practice so
mark it DEPRECATED and set an expiration date of September 1.  Of some
is using it, let me know and I'll remove the DEPRECATION.

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.

Now that RELENG_4 is no longer supported, remove seatbelts preventing
these ports from being built there (and on pre-STABLE 5).

Upgrade to 1.0.1
  - Enable softupdates on disks we newfs since they are generally real
    disks.
  - Increase the size of swap and var in the example.

Add MASTER_SITE_LOCAL to the list of MASTER_SITES.  Get rid of debugging
in the rc.d script.  Make the script actually avoid rewiping the disk
once it's been labled.

Setting USE_RCORDER to an undefined variable means nothing happens.  Set
it to PORTNAME not NAME so we actually install the helper script.

Upgrade to 1.0.0.  The primary differences are support for geom and ufs
labels plus a startup script that allows disks to be configured at boot
based on the existance of a geom label.

This release de-supports FreeBSD < 5.3 due to the geom label support
requirment.

The diskprep program prepares a disk for use.  It can be used for a
variety of purposes including initalizing flash disks to use as boot
media or automaticly configured the disks of nodes in a cluster.
