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.

devel/autoconf*: restructure to prepare for 2.71

- Rename autoconf 2.13 port directory, package, and command all to
  autoconf2.13 just like ports like perl and python.
- Let USES=autoreconf run gtkdocize if necessary.
- Rewrite autoconf-wrapper and rename it autoconf-switch to reflect
  better what it does.
- Delete patch-bison.  It has been reverted upstream.
- Add a patch to let autoreconf set the AUTOCONF environment variable
  so subprocesses like automake use the correct version.
- Make building of info files optional.
- Address portlint, portclippy, portfmt issues in devel/autoconf*.
