Drop the net-im/ayttm port. Keeping it would be a waste of time
and resources for the following reasons:

- Does not build on recent OS versions;
- The project seems to be abandoned (last release in 2010,
  last commit in 2011)
- Does not seem to be used on FreeBSD at all. The port was never
  updated in four years and nobody ever complained.
- Does not seem to be much used on other platforms too, according
  to the silence ayttm-users at lists.sourceforge.net
