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

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.

devel/e2fsprogs-libss: merge to sysutils/e2fsprogs

This is to break dependency cycles between e2fsprogs-libss and
e2fsprogs (see 254751 comment #18 for details), and to avoid creating
yet another split-out port, then for e2fsprogs's libcom_err.

Bump PORTREVISION of the four e2fsprogs consumers to flush out
their e2fsprogs-libss dependency records.

Fix Qt5 symbol version scripts to put the catch-all clause first.  When
a symbol matches multiple clauses the last one takes precedence.  If the
catch-all is last it captures everything.  In the case of Qt5 libraries
this caused all symbols to have a Qt_5 label while some should have
Qt_5_PRIVATE_API.  This only affects lld because GNU ld always gives the
catch-all lowest priority.

Older versions of Qt5Webengine exported some memory allocation symbols from
the bundled Chromium.  Version 5.9 stopped exporting these [1] but the
symbols were kept as weak wrappers for the standard allocation functions to
maintain binary compatibility. [2][3]  The problem is that the call to the
standard function in these weak wrappers is only resolved to the standard
function if there's a call to this standard function in other parts of
Qt5Webengine, because only then is there a non-weak symbol that takes
precedence over the weak one.  If there's no such non-weak symbol the call

New port: sysutils/vzvol: Feature-rich ZFS zvol management tool

vzvol is a zvol manager, that allows a user to create,
format, and manage zvols in the context of use for
virualization. It is meant to simplify the management of
these devices, as well as allow the creation of a shim
.VMDK file to allow the use of a zvol with VirtualBox.
