invalid WWW: addresses in pkg-descr

A lot of pkg-descr files in ports contain WWW: urls that don't point to a
valid address.  After finding one such invalid WWW: url, I wrote a perl
script that checks them (which I can provide if someone wants it).  I have
stuck the results at http://endif.cjb.net/~end/ports-www-err.txt

Also, another thing I noticed was that at least one port
(audio/xmms-musepack), and maybe others store the urls like
  WWW:
          http://foobar.com/
          http://example.com/
which make www-site can't seem to handle properly.
