fontforge: Update to 20190801

Along with the usual bugfixes, there have been a couple of new features worth \ 
calling out:

    Added Croatian translation
    Added user decompositions
    New graphic for the splash/about screen
    Images embedded in SFDs are now serialised as PNGs
        This is enabled by default, but may be turned off with the \ 
'WritePNGInSFD' option.
        A new tag is used to identify this mode; 'Image2', instead of 'Image'
        This requires FontForge to be compiled with libpng support. If not \ 
compiled with libpng, FontForge will revert to the old method of serialising RLE \ 
encoded raw images.

As part of an ongoing effort to clean up the code base, there have additionally \ 
been multiple build system changes:

    Python 2 support is deprecated. It is strongly recommended to build with \ 
Python 3 support. Python 2 support will be removed in a future release.
    Both the Windows and Mac builds are now built with Python 3 instead of Python 2.
    The minimum supported version for the Mac build is now MacOS Sierra (10.12)
    FontForge no longer uses gnulib
    collab support has been removed
    The build system now expects libuninameslist to be present, and will fail if \ 
it is not found. Building without libuninameslist must be explcititly specified \ 
using --without-libuninameslist

Log message:
fontforge: Use _TOOLS_USE_PKGSRC to select pkgsrc date(1).

Using TOOLS_PLATFORM.date= has the unfortunately side-effect of creating an
empty BUILD_DATE pkg_summary entry, as ${DATE} fails when generating the
metadata.  Found by a pkg_summary checker.
