Bump portrevision due to upgrade of devel/gettext.

The affected ports are the ones with gettext as a run-dependency
according to ports/INDEX-7 (5007 of them) and the ones with USE_GETTEXT
in Makefile (29 of them).

All dictionaries can be installed separately:

  - by default, textproc/aspell installs the English dictionaries (no
  - thereafter you can install any foreign dictionary;
  - when you install a foreign dictionary, i.e. french/aspell or
    textproc/da-aspell, it installs only the dictionaries, and depends
    upon textproc/aspell for the programs;
  - if you don't need the English dictionaries, you can define
    WITHOUT_DICTEN or install textproc/aspell-without-dicten;
  - add a new port for textproc/en-aspell: if aspell had been installed
    without the English dictionaries, they can be added thereafter;
  - add a missing port for german/alt-aspell;
  - foreign dictionaries are almost independent from textproc/aspell,
    and their maintainership is available.
