Move Objective-C ports to the v2 GNUstep ABI.

 * Bump the LLVM revision used for GNUstep to 7, the minimum to support
   the new ABI.
 * GNUstep-back does not work with lld, so mark it to use Gold (BFD LD
   doesn't seem able to link Objective-C things).
 * Turn off some annoying debug logs in GNUstep back, which generate
   several messages per second when you move the mouse.  These should
   never have been enabled in a release build anyway.
 * Downgrade Cenon to 4.0.2.  This was the last version to actually work
   with GNUstep (the later ones use XCode >= 5 .xib files, which GNUstep
   can't parse).
 * Update gorm to git head. The current release doesn't work with the
   new Objective-C ABI, but -head has the patches to fix it.
 * Update PikoPixel and add it to the gnustep-app meta-package.
 * Update the three core GNUstep packages to the latest release.
 * Update gnumail and pantomime to the latest release and fix a linking
   error with the new ABI.
 * Update GNUstep FTP to the latest version.

Fix configure options for gnustep-make

We were not setting the flag to select the GNUstep ABI, so were defaulting to
using the GCC-compatible version, which was likely to trigger a lot of subtle
bugs.  This was noticed when C++ exceptions thrown through Objective-C stack
frames caused segfaults.

Make all GNUstep ports install into the System domain so that the Local domain
is available for stuff built from source.

Some ports were already installing in the System domain, for these just remove
the Makefile lines explicitly specifying the install domain.

The rest are installed in the Local domain, remove any overrides, update their
pkg-plists and any explicit paths in the Makefiles and then bump port revision.

- Replace ${MASTER_SITE_FOO} with FOO.
- Merge MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR into MASTER_SITES when possible. (This means 99.9%
  of the time.)
- Remove occurrences of MASTER_SITE_LOCAL when no subdirectory was present and
  no hint of what it should be was present.
- Fix some logic.
- And generally, make things more simple and easy to understand.

While there, add magic values to the FESTIVAL, GENTOO, GIMP, GNUPG, QT and
SAMBA macros.

Also, replace some EXTRACT_SUFX occurences with USES=tar:*.

Update to latest GNUstep core libraries.
Update dependent packages with more recent releases.
Remove old and bit-rotted ones.
Switch to using clang 3.3 and libobjc2 1.7 by default, so modern Objective-C
features work out of the box and remove a lot of configurable options for
sub-optimal (and, often, unsupported / deprecated upstream) configurations.
Take maintainership of GNUstep-related ports.

Several of the ports left in have scary warnings which mean that they are likely
broken in lots of cases.  Future commits will fix them.
