Install texinfo files (GNU info) into ${PREFIX}/share/info

After a discussion on the mailing list on moving manpages to
${PREFIX}/share/man for consistency with base where it is
installed in usr/share/man, it appeared the same should happen
to GNU info files which were installed under share in base and
not in ports.

Now texinfo is not in base on any of the supported version of FreeBSD
it is possible to proceed to this move and it is easier to do than
the manpage change.

Other benefit than consistency are less patching: all build tools but
cmake are expecting info files to be under share/info and cmake (patched here)
was having an exception for BSD so the patch makes FreeBSD case less
specific for them

Fix a long standing bug of lib/charset.alias being overwritten, modified, and
badly tracked by ports.

Make lib/charset.alias a file only provided by converters/libiconv
Create a new USES: charsetfix, that will modify in post patch the Makefile.in to
prevent a port from modifying/overwritting the charset.alias file during make
install.
Prevent devel/gettext from installing that files.
Fix a couple of ports that actually touch charset.alias during the build phase.
