[HEADSUP] About removing ${PORTSDIR}/ from dependency lines

hi all,

The ports tree is now able to remove the ${PORTSDIR} from dependency lines.

However, to make the change as seamless as possible I would like that we only
do that after 2016Q1 is branched. This means that all tools will be available
via packages (if they need fixes) that also means we do not complicated our life
for Merging to the stable branch, given the stable branch would be able to
handle dependency line without ${PORTSDIR}

I on purpose removed the CHANGES entry and will readd just before branching.

If you are maintaining a tool that deals with the ports tree make sure it works
properly if the dependency lines are defined without ${PORTSDIR}/

Best regards,
