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:*.

Remove USE_GPG from all effected ports. This knob is a no-op and the way it
was supposed to work is useless, because if we can't trust the distfile from
the remote machine, we can't trust the signature from the same machine either.
Our MD5 and SHA256 are good for checking both the sanity and the
trustiness of distfiles.
