New Revision: 211041

  Update for new features, -t for --clean-distfiles, --clean-packages
  Update for new behavior of -G
  Add documentation of -F option which was somehow missing previously
  Add a warning to -t option
  Remove mention of deprecated items
  Add a warning that custom OPTIONS + --index-only == you must build
  your own INDEX file
  Add a mention of ports-mgmt/portconf
  Improve the markup by using .Sy to fake consistency for some of the
  optional flags that are hard to represent otherwise.
