I have updated devel/ruby-sdl to 2.1.2

- Update to 2.1.2
- Change master sites to RUBYFORGE
- Add license (LGPL21)
- Add dependencies for devel/sdl_sge, japanese/libskk and devel/sdlskk
- Support STAGEDIR
- Change DOCS, EXAMPLES and add DOCS, EXAMPLES Options
- Change pkg-descr
- Add WWW

Build log

devel/sdlskk must be changed that good compile devel/ruby-sdl-2.1.2

- Change comment and pkg-descr
- Add CONFIGURE_ARGS+=--with-pic

Build log

ak@ have this wrote on #bsdports

ak> nemysis: perhaps it would be better to change COMMENT for devel/sdlskk from "SDLSKK is SKK on SDL" to something like 'SKK like library for input Japanese, based on sdl'?  

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=--with-pic is needed to can fix good devel/ruby-sdl or get

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libSDLSKK.a(sdlskk.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/libSDLSKK.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
*** [] Error code 1
1 error
===> Compilation failed unexpectedly.  
Try to set MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE=yes and rebuild before reporting the failure to
the maintainer.
*** [do-build] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/local/ports/local/In-Review/devel/ruby-sdl.

And with this change get

compiling rubysdl_sdlskk.c

Please approve these changes.

Best regards,
Rusmir Dusko, nemysis
