Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Simplify port-specific manpages location after r523104

Not all of my ports are covered because:
- USES=cmake requires patching devel/cmake to undo BSD-specific defaults
  (A good example why BSD quirks should stay in ports, not to be upstreamed)
- USES=meson and GNU_CONFIGURE require dropping --mandir argument
- ponscripter-sekai requires Templates/BSD.local.dist to NOT create PREFIX/man
