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.

- Make slave ports of www/w3m work as are before master port is
- Convert makefile header to new format.
- Remove shlib version from LIB_DEPENDS.
- Remove M17N option and make m17n feature always on. It is because
configure script enables m17n feature by default and there is no
practical advantage of disabling it.
- Remove www/w3m-m17n and www/w3m-m17-img because they are now identical
with www/w3m and www/w3m-img.
- Add entry of removed ports to MOVED.
- Adjust dependency of www/emacs-w3m.
- Bump PORTREVISON of w3m ports and www/emacs-w3m.

The vast majority of pkg-descr files had the following format when they
had both lines:

Author: ...
WWW: ....

So standardize on that, and move them to the end of the file when necessary.

Also fix some more whitespace, and remove more "signature tags" of varying
forms, like -- name, etc.


A few other various formatting issues
