guide: Document TOOL_DEPENDS

Document TOOL_DEPENDS and clarify the differencies with BUILD_DEPENDS.
Adjust previous BUILD_DEPENDS examples (all of them were actually
TOOL_DEPENDS).

XXX: No BUILD_DEPENDS example is provided, if you have any good and common
XXX: BUILD_DEPENDS example please add it (a TODO comment was added regarding
XXX: that).  At least according a quick grep of BUILD_DEPENDS probably most of
XXX: them are actually BUILD_DEPENDS and maybe all real BUILD_DEPENDS are via
XXX: buildlink3.mk inclusion.

Log message:
doc/guide: fill in the MASTER_SITE variables automatically

Keeping these two lists in sync is not something that humans should do.

Log message:
Drop the use of compression in CVS.
"Do not use the cvs `-z` flag. The data stream gets out of sync,
leading to corruption on the client, or causing the client to hang
completely."

Log message:
doc/guide: use Python instead of Perl for autogenerating help topics

The code is shorter and there's less line noise.

Log message:
doc/guide: remove outdated text from the Makefiles chapter

Most of the wording was based on the pkglint implementation from before
2015 and was too technical to be useful. Since 2015, bmake doesn't split
the .for arguments on simple whitespace but uses brk_string as well,
therefore that information was outdated.
