[HEADSUP] symlink maintenance on ftp-master

I'm not really sure whether people use these shortcuts, but just in case:

There are shorthand symlinks in the pub/FreeBSD/ports/<arch> directories
that are stale.  I am going to change '7' to '8' in their targets:

  pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-stable currently points to
  pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-stable currently points to

IIRC the programs that are set up to download from these directories
already use the longer form.

Please let me know of any problems.
