Revised like Boris did for misc/mc [1].

Now attached raw Makefile and patch (renamed), as patch does not
handle new files on nonexistent files directory. :-(

PORTREVISION bumped, as this port is small enough and NO_BUILD,
and need updating for recent -head.

But at least 2 ports is affected for now, and possibly more.
IMHO, these Gnu diff compatible group-format related options
would be worth implemented by bsdiff.
