Removing wrong prefix from portname

as it was discussed earlier, we should add PYTHON_PKGNAMEPREFIX (py27-, 
py32- etc) only if the port in question is the python library. If it's 
standalone application, this prefix should be omitted, because it's more 
logical and because user generally doesn't care what language needed app 
is written on.

I'm particularly interested in procedure of transition wrongly prefixed 
port (security/zenmap). Package name transition is: py27-zenmap -> 
zenmap. Is removing PYTHON_PKGNAMEPREFIX from port's Makefile enough? 
Should the port be rebuilt, to guarantee everything is ok? Thanks.
