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.

[PowerPC64LE] Fix Lua 5.2 runtime issue

Lua 5.2 (but not earlier or later versions) has a powerpc platform detection
check.

This check was not using the preferred define `__powerpc__` so fails to
trigger on gcc.

It also assumes that all of powerpc is big-endian.

Check a more universal preprocessor define, and add support for the
upcoming FreeBSD PowerPC64LE.

USES=lua gained flavors.

Ports using USES=lua:module or lua:flavors will be flavored.  A range of
supported lua versions can be set using XX-YY (or XX-, or -YY, or simply ZZ)
for ports not supporting all lua versions.

USES=lua sets LUA_FLAVOR that needs to be used on all dependencies of
flavored lua ports, in a similar way as PHP or Python flavors.

Use -fPIC on all arches; lua builds the object files into a shared lib.

Since the object files get built into a shared lib, using -fPIC on all
arches is the right thing to do, instead of adding it to each new arch that
comes along which doesn't accidentally allow non-PIC modules in shared libs.

Add new port lang/lua52.

Lua is a programming language originally designed for extending applications,
but also frequently used as a general-purpose, stand-alone language. Lua
combines simple procedural syntax (similar to Pascal) with powerful data
description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics.
Lua is dynamically typed, interpreted from bytecodes, and has automatic memory
management with garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration,
scripting, and rapid prototyping.

A fundamental concept in the design of Lua is to provide meta-mechanisms for
implementing features, instead of providing a host of features directly in
the language. For example, although Lua is not a pure object-oriented
language, it does provide meta-mechanisms for implementing classes and
inheritance. Lua's meta-mechanisms bring an economy of concepts and keep the
