sysutils/firstboot-freebsd-update: HTTP_TIMEOUT=5

If a system with firstboot_freebsd_update_enable="YES" boots without
access to the FreeBSD Update mirrors (e.g. an EC2 instance which has
an EC2 security group settings which block outbound HTTP) the boot
will hang until it times out.  The default timeout of 120 seconds is
suboptimal.

Run freebsd-update with a timeout of 5 seconds, and bump the package
version to 1.4 to reflect this change.

sysutils/firstboot-freebsd-update: Add --not-running-from-cron

On systems without a working console, running freebsd-update fetch
from an rc script triggers the "should not be run non-interactively"
error.  Solve this by telling freebsd-update to skip that check.

Teach the firstboot-freebsd-update script to disable itself if it is run
on something other than *-BETA*, *-RC*, or *-RELEASE*.  There won't be
any bits available to download, and if we don't disable it then the first
boot will be slowed down due to freebsd-update trying all of the available
mirrors.
