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.

In preparation of the update of glib remove the -reference ports

Those ports mainly concern old Gnome2 libraries, the behaviour of this infra
is not compatible with the meson build system (being used in newer version)
the documentation is provided otherwise in the other version

- Add header in these *-reference ports.
- Fix a few of pkg-descr by chase the rename.
- Move all PORTREVISION and PORTEPOCH to top with ?=.
- Put USE_X_PREFIX back in, but under REFERENCE_PORT, and remove PREFIX? and
  USE_XLIB. This fix ports to use the correct mtree when you change the prefix,
  for example:

        Incorrect: (Without USE_X_PREFIX)
        # cd /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/gtk20
        # make -V MTREE_FILE
        # make PREFIX=/tmp/foo -V MTREE_FILE
        /etc/mtree/BSD.local.dist <-- Here...
