Upgrade the Cinnamon desktop environment to version 4.8

This version uses Python 3 instead of the expired Python 2.7

From the main PR (249856):

" There are a couple known issues:
  * x11-fm/nemo crashes upon closing a window or tab.
  * x11/cinnamon-screensaver unlocking doesn't work, most likely due to a
missing PAM (Linux-PAM?) integration.
  Both of these issues are being worked on.

  I've been dogfooding since Cinnamon 4.0, and apart from those issues,
everything works."

The FreeBSD GNOME team proudly presents GNOME 3.14 and Cinnamon 2.2.
Gnome 3.14.1 and Cinnamon 2.2.16 are supported on FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE and up.

This commit removes the old GNOME 2 desktop, bindings and some ports that
can't be compiled. A few ports where updated to more recent versions to
allow them to compile with this update.

Apart from updating ports to newer versions

GDM is more integrated with gnome-shell now, and handles several things for
the GNOME desktop such as screen locking. If you want to use GNOME 3 via
startx, you will have to add your own lock screen/screensaver. For example
can be used for sessions started without GDM.
