devel/autoconf*: restructure to prepare for 2.71

- Rename autoconf 2.13 port directory, package, and command all to
  autoconf2.13 just like ports like perl and python.
- Let USES=autoreconf run gtkdocize if necessary.
- Rewrite autoconf-wrapper and rename it autoconf-switch to reflect
  better what it does.
- Delete patch-bison.  It has been reverted upstream.
- Add a patch to let autoreconf set the AUTOCONF environment variable
  so subprocesses like automake use the correct version.
- Make building of info files optional.
- Address portlint, portclippy, portfmt issues in devel/autoconf*.

sysutils/consolekit2: update to 1.2.2, latest upstream

This commit picks up several ideas:
- update to the 1.2.2 release from upstream (PR 252783)
- make the X11 option useful again; it **was** useless, so
  PR 255847 proposed removing the option -- X11 is mandatory --
  but there was patches also to remove X11 entirely, for a
  Wayland-only experience. I've massaged it all until the
  option is useful and meaningfully selects for X11 (or not).

The original patch for optionalize-X11 came from amdmi3@,
and the "competing" one was -- via DankBSD, from unrelentingtech,
who also has other patches (obtained from GitHub) for CK2.

Move some gnome@ ports to desktop@

As gnome@ is lacking active committers at the moment, transfer some of its
ports [1] up the stack to the desktop@ group, in hope that this way we get some
updates in as the set of people that "should feel responsible" grows.

As soon as gnome@ grows some committers again, this can (and should) of course
be reverted again.

[1] The list of ports chosen in this move consits of all the ports that are
required to build x11/kde5.

sysutils/consolekit2: Make ck-system-* scripts user editable

This might be needed when using alternatives to init(8), like
sysutils/runit-faster, which do not react well to signals send by
shutdown(8)/reboot(8) and where you have to use other commands,
like runit-init {0,6}.  By updating the ck-system-* scripts to run
them instead, we can actually make use of things like the Xfce4
logout dialog or Kodi's shutdown dialog with runit-faster.  But to
make this permanent across updates the scripts have to be installed
as sample files.
