FreeBSD Port: awstats-6.2

FWIW, I think the original patch posted was lacking some changes in the
pkg-plist which may or may not have been in the 6.2 update, when various
bit moved around and the installed files changed.

I've made another[1] for the 6.3 port[2]. This 6.3 port builds, installs,
runs[3] and deinstalls cleanly. It doesn't specifically address any .jar
install or other issues.

The maintainer was alive a little while ago, when he reviewed my 6.2 patch
and provided the update to ports/74788, which pav committed.

People running 6.2 _are_ getting exploited, and given how so many
webmasters don't know how to properly set up web servers to run as an
unprivileged application user, with content owned by a different user
without write access to the app user, this port really needs to be updated
