Hi all,

For the third time, I'm running a deprecation campaign to remove old, 
unmaintain and/or problematic stuff from the ports tree (ports@)

As usual I may be wrong there maybe some false positive, I sharpened a 
bit my analysis scripts so there should be less false positive in the 
deprecated ports.

While here I have fix and will fix lots of ports master_sites that 
would be great if you fix as much master sites as you can, this website 
may help:

Feel free to correct my mistake and undeprecate ports that need to stay 
in the ports tree.

Please avoid saving ports just because you expect someone may one day 
be using it. Some ports have been saved in the past and are now marked 
broken for while and no user complained about.

I also marked broken ports that does fetch anymore but still seems to 
have upstream, if you need them, please fix them.
