New port: www/palemoon

Pale Moon(TM) offers you a browsing experience in a browser completely built
from its own, independently developed source that has been forked off from
Firefox/Mozilla code a number of years ago, with carefully selected features
and optimizations to improve the browser's stability and user experience, while
offering full customization and a growing collection of extensions and themes
to make the browser truly your own.

Some of the main features:
- Based on the Unified XUL Platform (UXP) containing our own optimized layout
  and rendering engine (Goanna).
- Safe: Forked from mature Mozilla code and regularly updated with the latest
  security patches.
- Secure: Additional security features and security-aware development
- Zero ads; no telemetry, spyware or data gathering
- Familiar, efficient, fully customizable interface

www/{palemoon,seamonkey}: put on a deathbed

No point in keeping abandonware only to delay Mk/bsd.gecko.mk cleanup.
SeaMonkey is unlikely to escape the rabbit hole of technical debt and
PaleMoon is unlikely to be friendly to BSDs (or packagers in general).

www/palemoon: Consolidate sndio patches and apply softvol fix [1]

This will prevent Pale Moon from changing the slot volumes of sndiod
which can lead to them being too silent or even muted when Pale Moon
happens to reuse one of them later.  It'll also fix a bug where Pale
Moon won't pick up slot volumes changes done externally and thus
provides inaccurate volume controls.
