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.

Description:
This library package provides several forward error correction (FEC) decoders and accelerated primitives useful in digital signal processing (DSP). Except for the Reed-Solomon codecs, these functions take full advantage of the MMX, SSE and SSE2 SIMD instruction sets on Intel/AMD IA-32 processors and the Altivec/VMX/Velocity Engine SIMD instruction set on the G4 and G5 PowerPC. The library includes Viterbi decoders for the following convolutional codes: rate 1/2 k=7 rate 1/2 k=9 rate 1/6 k=15 ("Cassini") plus two Reed-Solomon encoder-decoders: one optimized for the (255,223) CCSDS standard code a general purpose encoder/decoder for arbitrary RS codes and three low-level 16-bit DSP support routines: signed dot product peak detection sum-of-squares (energy) computation This library is licensed under the "lesser" GNU General Public License.

Add WWW entries to port Makefiles

It has been common practice to have one or more URLs at the end of the
ports' pkg-descr files, one per line and prefixed with "WWW:". These
URLs should point at a project website or other relevant resources.

Access to these URLs required processing of the pkg-descr files, and
they have often become stale over time. If more than one such URL was
present in a pkg-descr file, only the first one was tarnsfered into
the port INDEX, but for many ports only the last line did contain the
port specific URL to further information.

There have been several proposals to make a project URL available as
a macro in the ports' Makefiles, over time.

Update CONFLICTS definitions in categories a* to c*

Update the CONFLICTS definitions of ports in the following categories:

- accessibility
- archivers
- audio
- benchmarks
- biology
- cad
- chinese
- comms
- converters

An attempt has been made to use generic conflicts patterns that do not
have to be updated whenever a new version of a conflicting port is
added to the ports system.

There is a misunderstanding that the port being built/installed has to
be omitted from the conflicts pattern. This is not true - the port
being built is implicitly non-conflicting due to logic in bsd.port.mk.

comms/libfec: add BUILD_DEPENDS as:devel/binutils

/usr/bin/as will soon be removed from the FreeBSD base system, for
FreeBSD 13.0.

Depend on as (not ${LOCALBASE}/bin/as) so that this will introduce no
change for existing 11.x and 12.x, which will continue to use the base
system GNU as 2.17.50.

Bump PORTREVISION for ports depending on the canonical version of GCC
as defined in Mk/bsd.default-versions.mk which has moved from GCC 8.3
to GCC 9.1 under most circumstances now after revision 507371.

This includes ports
 - with USE_GCC=yes or USE_GCC=any,
 - with USES=fortran,
 - using Mk/bsd.octave.mk which in turn features USES=fortran, and
 - with USES=compiler specifying openmp, nestedfct, c11, c++0x, c++11-lang,
   c++11-lib, c++14-lang, c++17-lang, or gcc-c++11-lib
plus, everything INDEX-11 shows with a dependency on lang/gcc9 now.

This library package provides several forward error correction (FEC) decoders
and accelerated primitives useful in digital signal processing (DSP).
Except for the Reed-Solomon codecs, these functions take full advantage of
the MMX, SSE and SSE2 SIMD instruction sets on Intel/AMD IA-32 processors
and the Altivec/VMX/Velocity Engine SIMD instruction set on the
G4 and G5 PowerPC.
The library includes Viterbi decoders for the following convolutional codes:
rate 1/2 k=7
rate 1/2 k=9
rate 1/6 k=15 ("Cassini")
plus two Reed-Solomon encoder-decoders:
one optimized for the (255,223) CCSDS standard code
a general purpose encoder/decoder for arbitrary RS codes
and three low-level 16-bit DSP support routines:
signed dot product
