portstree patch with hotfix

A feature added in 6.18 causes problems: when trying to use all files in
--getmaildir, getmail will choke on oldmail-* files, which are highly likely to
be present.

Since this is the new default behaviour for running getmail without any
arguments, this change is very likely to break many installations.

This patch is the fix committed upstream as 9d15886, fast-tracked into the
ports tree here instead of waiting for the bugfix release.
