As the maintainer for Merkaartor, I received a report from a user. The
About-dialog in his case shows a curious string as the Merkaartor version.
There is code to determine this by running `git describe`. I'm not sure whether
he installed the pkg or build the port, but the GH distfile download doesn't
qualify as a git repo, so it really makes no sense for the FreeBSD port to rely
on git and, as we see here, potentially mess up the version string.

So for the purpose of getting a reliable string in the about-dialog I've
decided to get rid of the `git describe` lines in Config.prio.

Also, while I'm here, I might as well include the terminology-fix from
https://github.com/openstreetmap/merkaartor/pull/260, since I have no idea how
long it will be before upstream decides to make a new release.

Poudriere build:

Package (showing the correct string)
