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

Add port textproc/flex:

Flex is a tool for generating scanners. A scanner, sometimes called a
tokenizer, is a program which recognizes lexical patterns in text. The
flex program reads user-specified input files, or its standard input
if no file names are given, for a description of a scanner to generate.
The description is in the form of pairs of regular expressions and C
code, called rules. Flex generates a C source file named, "lex.yy.c",
which defines the function yylex(). The file "lex.yy.c" can be compiled
and linked to produce an executable. When the executable is run, it
analyzes its input for occurrences of text matching the regular
expressions for each rule. Whenever it finds a match, it executes the
corresponding C code.

WWW: http://flex.sourceforge.net/

Note that there's flex 2.5.4 in the base system. This port provides
a newer version for programs that require it, textproc/xxdiff for one.
