mail/fetchmail: update to 6.4.31.

Since the distro was built with a newer autoconf, the patch-configure
no longer applies and has been converted to a post-patch REINPLACE_CMD,
also to avoid future breakage.

This also adds one upstream Git patch to fix the version and date tags
in the manual page.

mail/fetchmail depends overhaul, new fetchmailconf port

* Bring back SNI (server name indication) support for TLS connections,
  lost in 6.3.26_10 (PORTREVISION=10) as a regression over _9.
  Pointy hat: mandree@
* Drop the X11 option, remove the Python dependency, and create a new
  mail/fetchmailconf slave port/package that installs the fetchmailconf
  configurator. Note that the _DEPENDS of the ports reflects a technical
  dependence (fetchmailconf needs fetchmail), and we cannot keep an
  X11 option that depends on fetchmailconf, since that would create
  a circular dependency, which we must avoid.
* Patch configure instead of with Cy's Kerberos fix, drop
  autoreconf from USES, and add a new configure check directly to set
  HAVE_DECL_SSLV3_CLIENT_METHOD to cover the various TLS providers
  (currently five, base, openssl, openssl111, libressl, libressl-devel)
* Add -Wl,--as-needed to LDFLAGS so as not to pull in unneeded .so
  libraries, for instance, libcom_err when compiling under GSSAPI_NONE.

Very fruitful and nice collaboration with and

Update to new upstream release 6.3.14. Changes:

* SSL/TLS certificate information is now also reported properly on computers
  that consider the "char" type signed. Fixes malloc() buffer overrun.
  Workaround for older versions: do not use verbose mode.  CVE-2010-0562
  See fetchmail-SA-2010-01.txt for details, including a minimal patch.

* The IMAP client no longer skips messages from several IMAP servers including
  Dovecot if fetchmail's "idle" is in use.  Causes were that fetchmail (a)
  ignored some untagged responses when it should not (b) relied on EXISTS
  messages in response to EXPUNGE, which aren't mandated by RFC-3501 (the IMAP
  standard) and aren't sent by Dovecot either.
    Fix by Sunil Shetye (the fix also consolidates IMAP response handling,
  improving overall robustness of the IMAP client), bug report and testing by
  Matt Doran, with further hints from Timo Sirainen.
* The SMTP client now recovers from errors (such as servers dropping the
  connection after errors) when sending an RSET command.
    Fix by Sunil Shetye. Report by James Moe.
* The IMAP client now uses "SEARCH UNSEEN" rather than "SEARCH UNSEEN NOT
  DELETED" again on IMAP2, to fix a regression in fetchmail 6.2.5 reported by
  Will Stringer in June 2004. (Sunil Shetye)
* The IMAP client now uses "SEARCH UNSEEN UNDELETED" on IMAP4 and IMAP4r1
  servers (Sunil Shetye).
* Workaround: The IMAP client now falls back to "FETCH n:m FLAGS" if the server
  does not support "SEARCH". (Sunil Shetye)
* The IMAP client now requests message numbers in batches of 1,000 to avoid
  problems if there are more than 1860 unseen messages. (Sunil Shetye)
    Note that this wasn't security relevant because fetchmail would only read up
  to the maximum buffer size and leave the remainder of the string unread, going
  out of synch afterwards.
* Stricter validation of IMAP responses containing byte or message counts.

* Only include gssapi.h if we're not including gssapi/gssapi.h, to fix a FreeBSD
  compiler warning about gssapi.h being obsolete.

* The README.SSL document was revised for grammar, spelling, and clarity.

- From the announcement:

  fetchmail 6.3.0 has been released on 2005-11-30. More than two years
  after the previous formal 6.2.5 release, this collects several dozen
  bug fixes, documentation, portability and IPv6 improvements and marks
  the beginning of a new "stable" 6.3.X branch that will not change,
  except for bug fixes and documentation updates.
