/electric-fence, Different kind of malloc() debugger

electric-fence-22.214.171.124.1nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
Electric Fence is a different kind of malloc() debugger. It uses the virtual
memory hardware of your system to detect when software overruns the boundaries
of a malloc() buffer. It will also detect any accesses of memory that has
been released by free(). Because it uses the VM hardware for detection,
Electric Fence stops your program on the first instruction that causes
a bounds violation. It's then trivial to use a debugger to display the

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for devel category
Issues found with existing distfiles:
No changes made to these distinfo files.
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Add gcc memory barriers after the manner of emacs20's patch-bm, for
the same reason: gcc "knows" that malloc has no side effects and
reorders code around it, only it's wrong. Fixes SIGSEGV during build
seen in some environments.
Bump package revision as a precaution, because I don't understand why
this sometimes doesn't fail and sometimes does with the same gcc

Per my old PR #40238: Match up the directory name and package name
to match the source distfile name.
(It had three different names, including, the distfile name.)
This moves electricfence to electricfence and renames the package from
ElectricFence to electric-fence.
