ircd-hybrid: Update to 8.2.25

Changes since 8.2.24:

-- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.25 (2019-04-24)
o) The 'class::number_per_ip', 'class::max_local' and 'class::max_global'
   configuration directives have been replaced with just 'class::number_per_ip_local'
   and 'class::number_per_ip_global'. The 'class::max_local' basically was
   redundant as it had the same functionality as 'class::number_per_ip'
o) Adding RESVs with wildcards no longer requires administrator privileges
o) The 'general::ignore_bogus_ts' configuration option has been deprecated
o) TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.0 are no longer supported and have been disabled in
   the openssl and gnutls module
o) Minimum supported OpenSSL version is 1.0.1f now
o) Minimum supported GnuTLS version is 3.5.8 now
o) The 'serverinfo::vhost' and 'serverinfo:vhost6' configuration directives have
   been deprecated. If you need to bind() a specific address you can specify one
   in the connect {} block
o) The 'connect::vhost' configuration directive has been renamed to 'connect::bind'

Log message:
ircd-hybrid: Update to 8.2.24

pkgsrc changes:
- No longer install a default ircd.conf file.  Upstream now only
  provides a reference ircd.conf file that needs to be adjusted.
  Document that in the MESSAGE.
- Remove INSTALL script.  All *.conf are no longer used, corresponding
  *.db living in ${VARBASE}/log/ircd-hybrid/lib are used instead
  ircd.motd is still honored and used but there is not a lot of point to
  continue to install it unconditionally without a configuration file.
- Remove `efnet', `halfops', `small-net' and `ziplinks' package options,
  corresponding configure arguments no longer available.
- No longer honor IRCD_HYBRID_SYSLOG_FACILITY, IRCD_HYBRID_NICLEN,
  IRCD_HYBRID_TOPICLEN, IRCD_HYBRID_MAXCONN and IRCD_HYBRID_SYSLOG_EVENTS,
  (syslog is no longer used and corresponding entry to set *LEN
  and *MAXCONN are now configurable via ircd.conf)
- Add LICENSE

Thanks to <spz> for suggestions!

o) Further improvements to GnuTLS support

-- Noteworthy changes in version 8.2.13 (2016-02-02)

o) Configuration related server notices are now sent to admins only as
   they potentially could leak passwords and other sensitive data to irc

   - Added service stamps to NICK/UID messages
   - Added SVS to server capabilities (CAPAB). SVS capable servers can
     deal with extended NICK/UID messages that contain service IDs/stamps.

     previously used usermode +r.
   - Added usermode +r (registered nick) and channelmode +r (registered channel)
   - Added usermode +R (only registered clients may send a private message)

   privilege flags. Read doc/reference.conf for further explanation of what
   these flags control

o) Removed general::burst_away configuration directive. AWAY bursts are now
   controlled via connect::flags explicitly
o) Introduced new logging subsystem including log rotation based on
   file sizes. Log timestamp format is ISO8601 now
o) Added support for remote D-lines
o) Added usermode +H which is basically a replacement for the hidden_admin and
   hidden_oper operator flags. With usermode +H, irc operator status can now
   be hidden even on remote servers
o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks
o) Removed the servlink program. ircd-hybrid can now make use of
   SSL/TLS for inter-server communication.
   NOTE: compressed server links are of course still available, but a SSL/TLS
   connection is required, as compression is now handled via OpenSSL
o) Removed 'ssl_server_protocol' configuration directive and
   added 'ssl_client_method' and 'ssl_server_method' instead.
   Both of these options can now be changed at runtime
o) Oper login IDs are no longer limited to NICKLEN*2

o) Fixed compile warning with gcc 4.6
o) Minor fixes to m_cap module
o) Added CIDR support for operator{} blocks

-- ircd-hybrid-7.3.1 Release Notes

   can join this channel.

-- ircd-hybrid-7.3-rc1 Release Notes
o) Major 64-bit cleanups and portability fixes.
o) Fixed bug where unregistered clients were not able to complete registration
   process with /quote PONG <ping_cookie> in case the client was assigned a
   zero value ping-cookie. This may only happen with general::ping_cookie
   being enabled.
o) "STATS z" now shows the actual amount of memory consumption being
   used by channel bans/excepts/invites.
o) Fixed archaic bug where bursting servers with missconfigured NICKLEN were
   able to desync the network's nickname database.
o) The PCRE library has been removed from the ircd sources. ./configure will
   now automatically detect an already installed version of the PCRE library.
o) Various resolver improvements and fixes
o) Implemented GUNGLINE (global ungline)
o) Completely rewrote build system. We're now using automake and libtool
o) Added support for SHA-256/512 encrypted passwords to mkpasswd. Whether
   passwords hashed using these algorithms will work depends on the system's
   crypt() implementation. For example, SHA-256/512 is available in glibc since
   version 2.7.
o) Added ssl_server_protocol configuration option to servinfo{}.
   Valid flags are 'sslv3' and 'tlsv1'
o) Added new 'server' option to listener::flags. Listener with that flag
   set may only accept server connections.
o) Fixed occasional core when placing RESVs on channel names
o) Fixed topic desynchronization which sometimes may
   happen during netbursts
o) WATCH support implemented. Known from other irc-daemons, such
   as Dreamforge and Bahamut. The general::max_watch configuration directive
   has been added in order to allow run-time configuration of how many
   watch entries a single client may have on its watchlist.
o) Fixed bug which would cause invalid invisible counts on oper-up in case
   operator::umodes and/or general::oper_umodes contains 'invisible'
o) Removed broken LazyLinks
o) Removed --disable-gline-voting configure option
o) Minor code optimizations and cleanups
o) ACCEPT now supports nick!user@host masks
o) Unregistered clients are no longer allowed to request the server's motd
o) general::dot_in_ip6_addr configuration option is obsolete and no longer exists
o) Dropped support for old style 'operflag = yes|no;' format

Recursive bump for perl5-5.28.0

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.
