Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Ada Framework: Switch to gcc5-aux, upgrade 6 packages at once

The transition from gcc-aux to gcc5-aux in the Ada framework has been
blocked by the inability to build gtkada3 and, once resolved, GPS (due
to tight locking with compiler).

A few days ago, Adacore made their annual release of their main libre
products, include GPS.  However, some products were tightly coupled with
the recent compilers, so in order to upgrade, the compiler had to be
switched and dependencies require many ports to be upgraded at once:

  * lang/asis
  * devel/gnatcoll
  * devel/gps
  * x11-toolkits/gtkada3
  * www/aws
  * www/aws-demos

While the version upgrades were modest in most cases (gps, gtkada3), the
amount of work put into each port was significant.  There are too many
improvements to mention here.  A few include the removal of dynamic
package lists and incorporating gnatcoll into gps to avoid building it
twice.  A private "exp-run" was done all on all 50+ Ada ports to ensure
they still build.

Also, a new argument was added to Uses/, "run", that pulls in the
GNAT compiler as a run depends.  This was necessary for GPS that will
not launch correctly without the compiler in place.

www/aws: Upgrade from =>

The templates parser was split out from AWS and due to quirk how
GPRBuild interacts with aggregate library projects, linking it as a
separate library was more than challenging.  It would drop a library
exchange file (aws.lexch) in /usr/local/lib/templates_parser during
the linking process.  Ports are not support to touch areas outside of
their work directory -- if they do, builders will notice and fail the
port.  After hours of trying to get GPRLib to behave, I was reduced to
copying the *.ali files over to the work directory and creating a
custom gpr file to make linking legal.  In the process, I noticed AWS
was linking back to work directory (sanity checks don't flag this yet)
so that was fixed the the custom "-R" option that I added to GPRBuild
a couple of years ago.

I had to create a custom aws.gpr file for lib/gnat, and it works really
well.  Currently something like 238 of 243 tests are passing and the
failing ones are socket related and may looking for linux-specific
output in a couple of cases.

* Documentation is now based on Sphinx.
* A fixed package list has replaced the generated one (due to number
  of options, this was a real chore to generate and validate)
* The option to generate only a shared library was removed.  It was
  confusing and not really useful.  It produces static and shared
  libraries by default, and the shared ones can be suppressed optionally.
* The FreeBSD-specific makefile was removed.  The previous issue was
  caused by the way the compiler was built which has since been fixed
* ASIS was added as dependency
* RUN_DEPENDS were defined (they were missing before)
* GNUTLS support was fixed.  It requires version 3 now and does not
  required gcrypt or openssl anymore which indicated a previous problem.

The aws-demos port had some missing files and other problems.  It has
been updated at the same time.  Note that the output directory has
changed from share/examples/aws-demos to share/examples/aws.  A couple
of tests that were broken now build, and a new test was added.

This update comes straight from the latest repositories and was custom
packaged.  The annual Adacore release was about 5 months old.
