Add an option for build with wxWidgets 3.1

Tested in 12.1-p10 amd64: make check-plist/install/run with wxWidgets 3.0, 3.1 and without both.

Upstream added support of the wxWidgets 2 months ago: https://github.com/elfmz/far2l/issues/726

If you'd read the log and the diff for ports r552954 more carefully, you would have noticed that the port is "USE_WX=3.0+" now (before was just 3.0 :-).  So you should be able to set your preferred WITH_WX_VER in the /etc/make.conf, and as long as it satisfies the USE_WX range, it would be used instead of the default.

However, I now see this code in the CMakeLists.txt:

>   if (${CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME} MATCHES "FreeBSD")
>     if (DEFINED wxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE)
>       ...
But apparently wxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE is not defined, and it looks for wx-config itself, first for 3.1, then for 3.0.  I'll look into this.  Regardless, port's options is not the right place for wxWidgets version selection.

Plz, no again:
.if ${.CURDIR:M*/misc/far2l*}
WITH_WX_VER=3.1
.endif

Already tested - it handle 3.0 1st if both are installed.

Option in ports look better than custom /etc/make.conf.
