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.

Description:
On FreeBSD, it's possible to allow plain users to mount filesystems without using su or sudo. This is enabled via vfs.usermount sysctl. However, if file name conversion is used when mounting a filesystem, in most cases mount will fail with `mount_XXX: XXX_iconv: Operation not permitted denied' error. This is caused by the fact that character set conversion tables need to be loaded into kernel, but, apart from mounting, that's not allowed to plain users, because charset tables are large enough to initiate a denial of service by filling kernel memory with many tables. This utility allows you to load only specific charset tables into kernel, so usermounts with file name conversions won't fail and in the same time it's not possible to bring the system down by filling kernel memory.

Remove WWW entries moved into port Makefiles

Commit b7f05445c00f has added WWW entries to port Makefiles based on
WWW: lines in pkg-descr files.

This commit removes the WWW: lines of moved-over URLs from these

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.
