   These ports do not depend on X11 libraries (i.e. x11* devices

MASTER_SITES cleanup.

- Replace ${MASTER_SITE_FOO} with FOO.
- Merge MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR into MASTER_SITES when possible. (This means 99.9%
  of the time.)
- Remove occurrences of MASTER_SITE_LOCAL when no subdirectory was present and
  no hint of what it should be was present.
- Fix some logic.
- And generally, make things more simple and easy to understand.

While there, add magic values to the FESTIVAL, GENTOO, GIMP, GNUPG, QT and
SAMBA macros.

Also, replace some EXTRACT_SUFX occurences with USES=tar:*.

NEW XORG ON FREEBSD 9-STABLE AND 10-STABLE

This update switches over to use the new xorg stack by default on FreeBSD 9
and 10 stable, on osversions where vt(9) is available.
It is still possible to use the old stack by specifying WITHOUT_NEW_XORG in
/etc/make.conf .
FreeBSD 8-STABLE and released versions of FreeBSD still use
the old version.
A package repository with binary packages for new xorg will
be available soon.

This patch also contains updates of libxcb and related ports, pixman, as well

Update to 9.06.  Changes include:

 - PDF/A-2 - pdfwrite now supports the creation of PDF/A-2 files.
   Simply specifying "-dPDFA" continues to have the old behaviour of creating
   PDF/A-1b files. For PDF/A-2 the command line should include "-dPDFA=2".

 - pdfwrite "Server mode" - pdfwrite can now be run in "server mode" which
   allows the device to be closed without closing the interpreter. This means
   it is no longer necessary to terminate GS before starting a new PDF
   conversion.

New options framework for the ports

for maintainers:
it introduces 3 different types of options: simple, multi and single:
- simple options are the same as the current options (i.e. on or off.)
- multi options are options where at least one must be set (1-N).
- single options are options where one and only one must be set (exclusive
  options).

for users:
- OPTIONS_SET: globally enable some options
- OPTIONS_UNSET: globally disable some options
- ${UNIQUENAME}_SET: enable per-port choice of options
- ${UNIQUENAME}_UNSET: disable per-port choice of options

For compatibility the old OPTIONS framework is now working on top of the new one
The options previously set with old OPTIONS are imported and converted
transparently.

A new knob NO_DIALOG if defined in the the config-conditional target is ignored
(prevent the dialog(1) ui to show up.

Update to 9.05.  Changes include:

- Ghostscript's PDF interpreter is now able to make use of the
  DroidSansFallback TrueType font to automatically substitute for
  missing CIDFonts. Whilst it is always best to ensure the
  original CIDFont is available for the best and most accurate
  output, the ability to make an automatic substitution will be
  valuable for those merely viewing or proofing such files.

- This release includes support for a proofing ICC profile. The
  command option is specified using -sProofProfile=filename. With
  this option, the color output will emulate what would be
  obtained had the source file been rendered on a device defined
  by the proofing profile. (See GS9_Color_Management.pdf for
  details.)
