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.

net/wifi-firmware-*kmod: improve build logic, add flavors, update fw version

- update framework to no longer depend on local distfiles for firmware(9)
  but generate the Makefile hierarchy in post-extract.  Keep a in files for simplicity.
- update extracting WHENCE parts using a local in files
  and a pattern to match the section(s).
- use the already prepared FWSUBS sections for flavors and add the
  FWDRV as "default".  Generate the CONFLICTS_INSTALL conflict and
  PKGNAMESUFFIX entries.  Adjust paths and logic for flavors.
  Depend on the flavors rather the combined ("default flavor") packages
  by default if someone installs wifi-firmware-kmod.
  The wifi-firmware-${name}-kmod packages are still built for older
  versions of fwget shipping in releases.
- add support for iwlwifi and ath12k firmware
- update firmware to linux-firmware.git tag: 20240513 for all drivers.

net/wifi-firmware-*: use metaport for "base" and switch to

Rename the wifi-firmware-base to wifi-firmware-kmod (similar to
gpu-firmware-mod).  The former was never build so technically it
is no move.  Make the new subdir a metaport including all
wireless firmware.
Move the old Makefile to and adjust the child ports

This solves two problems: (1) the base port is now buildable and (2)
there is a single port to depend on to add all the needed firmware
files to, e.g., put on a release media.
