*: recursive bump for libffi

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

hours already).

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.

Update to 2.38.

- 2.38 | 2014-10-08

  - bug-report address changed

    Please send bug reports to the address shown by running command:

     ./configure --help

    Mail sent to the previous address is likely to be misplaced.

  - bugfixes

    - ‘parse-form’ uses ‘list’ instead of ‘values’

      NB: Backward-incompatible change.

      Previously, this ‘(www server-utils form-2-form)’ proc would use
      ‘values’ for form elements that have type info, consing the
      result into the returned alist.  Unfortunately, use of ‘values’
      outside a ‘call-with-values’ context (e.g., as a container, as
      in this case) is not supported by Guile 2.x.

      Now, the four pieces of type info are packaged w/ ‘list’.

    - support for VPATH "make check"

      Previously VPATH "make check" failed to initialize each test's
      infrastructure (i.e., v/common).  Now it takes into account the
      configure-substituted and Makefile var ‘srcdir’ as well.

  - new optional arg ‘u8’

    - ‘(www url-coding) url-coding:decode’

      This proc now takes an optional arg U8, which if non-‘#f’, means
      to return a u8vector instead of a string.

    - ‘(www server-utils parse-request) alist<-query’

      This proc now takes an optionl arg U8, which if non-‘#f’, means
      to return u8vectors instead of strings for names and values.

  - changes to ‘(www server-utils form-2-form) parse-form’

    - non-string args ok

      The first arg can now be a form:

       ((multipart . MINOR) PARAMETER...)

      i.e., the parsed form of the Content-Type header's value.
      Relatedly, the arg's documented name is now simply TYPE.

      The second arg can now be an integer specifying the number of
      bytes to read from the current input port.

      For backward compatibility, TYPE and RAW-DATA can also be

    - sub ‘multipart/mixed’ better recognized

      Previously, a (sub) part w/ "Content-Type: multiPART / miXed"
      (for instance) would be handled opaquely.  Now, such a header is
      properly recognized and recursed into.  Sigh, one has to wonder:
      Will there ever be a more tightly specified MIME 2.0?

  - CGI file-uploads can now be done in "move u8" style

    Proc ‘(www cgi) cgi:init’ now accepts options ‘move’, which
    controls how file-uploads are handled.  When specified, the
    uploaded files are returned as procedures that can be called to
    write the actual contents of the file (a u8vector) to a port or
    to return those contents directly.  This option takes precedence
    over ‘uploads-lazy’.

    Another new option is ‘move-simple-text/plain’, which only is
    meaningful if ‘move’ is also specified.  This simplifies the
    value of form parameters with MIME type ‘text/plain’ to a
    string, discarding other MIME information.

    See examples/id.cgi.in for how to use these options.

  - "make check" locale support

    You can customize (somewhat) the locale that tests use by
    manipulating file v/testing-locale.  See README.

Log message:
Update to 2.37:

- 2.37 | 2013-07-28

  - dropped

    - example program wwwcat

      This trivial program is not so interesting.

    - module ‘(www main)’
    - proc ‘(www server-utils parse-request) read-first-line’
    - proc ‘(www server-utils parse-request) read-headers’
    - proc ‘(www server-utils parse-request) skip-headers’
    - proc ‘(www server-utils parse-request) read-body’
    - proc ‘(www http) http:head’
    - proc ‘(www http) http:get’

      These were announced in Guile-WWW 2.34 (2012-03-29) NEWS.

    - support for values in ‘receive-response’ spec

      This was announced in Guile-WWW 2.36 (2012-11-22) NEWS.

  - ‘(www url) url:address’ more strict
  - ‘(www url) url:unknown’ more strict

    Contrary to the Guile-WWW 2.34 (2012-03-29) NEWS blurb, these
    two procs are not being deleted.  Instead, they persist and now
    check their arg for the proper scheme (‘mailto’ and \ 
    respectively) to better support the (thin) abstraction they
    provide over the underlying data structure.

  - bootstrap tools upgraded
    - GNU Automake 1.13.4
