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.

- Fix logging dates in debug messages.

  not been rotated for more than a year.

sysutils/logrotate: 3.8.7 -> 3.8.8, fix mail sending

- Add support for building using autotools/automake.
  Using "./autogen.sh", "./configure" and "make" is now preferred way
  how to build logrotate.
  Old Makefile remains available, but it is deprecated and will be removed
  in the future. Please report any problem related to new build system.
- Add support for systems which do not support fork (use vfork instead)
  and madvise.
- Fix bug when wrong log file has been removed in case of dateext and
  dateformat %d-%m-%Y.
- Do not expect that the name of root account is 'root'.
- Do not stop rotation with an error when olddir and log file
  are on different devices and copy or copytruncate is used.
- Return an error code when parent directory of log does not exist,
  "su" directive is not used, logrotate is running as root and missingok
  is not specified. [vcizek]
- Prepend error printed by compression program with the log name even when
  the compression program exits with zero exit code.

- Olddir options fix

     logrotate's path-type options (eg. compress, olddir,
     just to name a few) fail because FreeBSD's libc
     implements mbtrowc(3) differently, and returns -2 on
     empty string. Linux version, however, returns 0.

     A simple zero-length check added to path check function,
     which hides this.
