New tools for committers and maintainers

A new tool was just committed to ports, ports-mgmt/distilator.
It will check for you each of the MASTER_SITES of the port you call it

I wold like to recommend that all the maintainers and commiters run it
just before submitting/committing. It's fast enough (it doesn't
download the DISTFILES, just checks each (MASTER_SITED, DISTFILES)
combination and gives you a nice list of what file is (not) where.
For speed, you will want to use perl-threaded.

And yes, it's on it's way to be integrated into QAT and PortsMon, so
there's no reason not to use it yourselves, to prevent receiving those
nasty BotMails.

A BIG thanks to ehaupt@ for writing it!

Have fun,
