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.

emulators/open-vm-tools: Add DEPLOYPKG option

Before this change, open-vm-tools port used to depend inconditionally of
libmspack, which is a requirement of DeployPkg plugin.  It turns out
that configure script only enable this plugin automatically on linux, so
it was not being built and dependency was not supposed to be there.

Instead of removing bogus dependency, I decided to add DEPLOYPKG option,
used to enable that plugin and left it off by default in order to
preserve previous default behavior.

Some changes on source code were needed to make DeployPkg to build on
FreeBSD and are done by new patches, which I intend to submit upstream.

Update to version 11.1.0

In terms of functionality this update is a no-op on
FreeBSD.  Some local patches were upstreamed and have
been removed from the port.

Tested matrix is ESXi 6.5 and 6.7, and Fusion.
FreeBSD HEAD, 12.1-R, 12.0-R and 11.3-R AMD64

The test plan ensures the VM power control works from
the management app, that the memory balloon driver operates
properly, and that reporting back to vCenter as far as IP
and whether the tools are installed and operational works.

In particular no i386 versions of FreeBSD were
explicitly tested, nor was any testing done on ESXi 7.0

The new functionality in this version of the tools is Windows/Linux
only.  See the listed PR for the pieces FreeBSD needs to achieve parity.
