  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
    ports-mgmt/portmaster Makefile distinfo 
  New Features:
  * Add --update-if-newer which will operate on a list of ports given
    on the command line. If a port list is already up to date, it
    will be skipped.
  * Tweak the way INDEX files are downloaded and installed to only
    require root privileges for the minimum possible number of actions,
    and do things in a more secure way:
    1. If necessary to download the new INDEX.bz2, as a non-root user, do
       it in a temporary directory created with mktemp
    2. If necessary to update the actual INDEX file unzip it in that same
       temporary directory
    3. Only use $PM_SU_CMD to install the file if necessary
    4. Unlink both INDEX and INDEX.bz2 in their real locations before
       installing the new versions
  * Add the ability to store the portmaster.rc file in the same directory
    as the script itself.
  Many improvements to the --index-only/--packages-only code, particularly
  in the absence of a ports tree.
  * Make the --index* options more friendly to being duplicated in the rc
    file and command line. Mixing different options will still trigger an
    error, however having the same option both places will not.
  * Don't do the work of handling the INDEX file if we won't need it
    (-l, --list-origins, -e, -s)
  * Reorganize the final check of $pd (PORTSDIR) to properly handle the
    various combinations
  * For multiple ports and -o, only test for the origin directory if
    we are not using the INDEX. If we are, check it there instead.
  * Add some code to --check-depends to explicitly handle --index-only.
    It worked before by ignoring the origin test if there was no ports
    directory, but failed if --index-only was also used.
    This is better both because it doesn't fail with --index-only, but
    also because it now uses the index to validate $origin.
  * Since --check-depends now works with --index-only, update usage()
  * Add some whitespace to the "Installing new +CONTENTS" message
  * In --clean-packages show the path in the delete prompt for stale
    packages that are not installed like we do for ones that are
  * Various internal cleanups and micro-optimizations
