p5-ack renamed ack, no entry in UPDATING

My apologies. I use portmaster. I don't know why I typed portupgrade in
that original message. Looking at the history file from my shell I see
"portmaster -o textproc/ack p5-ack-1.96_1" was used to correct the fact
that p5-ack was leftover after a "portmaster -a" run.

I agree duplicating the info in UPDATING would be unnecessary. I did not
have it in my procedures to look into MOVING. I will do that from now on.
