./sysutils/stow, Maps several separate packages into a tree without merging them

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.2.2nb2, Package name: stow-2.2.2nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Stow is a tool for managing the installation of multiple software
packages in the same run-time directory tree. One historical
difficulty of this task has been the need to administer, upgrade,
install and remove files in independent packages without confusing
them with other files sharing the same filesystem space.

The approach used by Stow is to install each package into its own
tree, then use symbolic links to make it appear as though the files
are installed in the common tree. Administration can be performed in
the package's private tree in isolation from clutter from other

Stow was inspired by Carnegie-Mellon's Depot program, but is
substantially smaller.

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.
