www/writefreely: Clean, Markdown-based publishing platform made for writers

Go-based port.  Lots of distfiles.  On dependency had to be swapped out because
the repo moved.  Custom rc script with a dedicated writefreely user.

portlint and portclippy like the port.  Tested with Poudriere on armv7, arm64,
amd64, i386 FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE.

This port requires a bunch of CSS files to be generated with lessc.  This is a
tool written for node.js and comes with the usual NPM issues.  I have decided
to roll a custom distfile hosted on my own server with pre-generated CSS files
to side step this issue.  Users can decide to compile their own CSS files with
the CSS_LESSC option (which uses NPM to download lessc and then uses that).

Alternative options are:

 * take the CSS files from the Linux binary distribution of the package
 * use some other less compiler to compile the CSS files (py-lesscpy was tested
and doesn't like the files)
 * port lessc and use that to compile the CSS files (troublesome NPM port)

Please advise if one of the other courses of action should be taken.
