Log message:
devel: Remove rx

This no longer has any users in pkgsrc and was discontinued upstream.

The GNU website says:

RX has been decommissioned, since no one has come forward to revive it, to \ 
improve it over the other free software regex library programs that are \ 
available, which would be quite a big task. (If you are interested after all, \ 
email <>

For a current regex implementation, we recommend using the regex code from \ 
Gnulib; see also the Regular expressions chapter in the Gnulib manual. (Also, if \ 
all you need is POSIX regexp functionality, any modern C library should provide \ 

The one-time regex standalone library has likewise been decommissioned in favor \ 
of the above.

(It's been unmaintained since at least 2010).

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, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
Fix indentation in files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.
