lang/scsh: Undelete and update port

The lang/scsh port was deleted in 2014

After some testing for a port contribution for scsh under pkgsrc-wip, it was possible to build scsh from src available at GitHub
This build used scheme48

The attached patch would undelete the lang/scsh port. furthermore updating the port with the following features
* using scsh src from the scheme group at GitHub. 
* add a second distfile, to accommodate a git submodule (rx) used for the scsh build
* using scheme48 when building this src
* adding port options for processing the scsh reference documentation, to an effect of producing documentation in any zero or more formats: Text, Markdown, HTML, LaTeX, and PDF. Any of these options requires, at least, racket - as to provide racket's scribble cmd. The PDF option also requires Xetex
* updated pkg-message, for the newer src
* adding a test target

To address some known concerns about the undeleted port:
- There are other ways to produce PDF with racket's scribble. Using Xetex might serve at least to minimize the additional dependencies under this port option
- While I've tested the build and the built scsh locally under a direct ports build, I've not yet been able to test it under a poudriere build - Poudriere is now in hour 48 of a local ports build and the build machine is pretty well maxxed out for processor usage. Inasmuch, I'm not entirely certain if all the build dependencies will "Just work" under Poudriere - there may be some option-specific dependencies I've missed, simply due to the ports being installed under the initial build
- The scsh built with the direct ports build, locally, has been tested only insofar as to ensure it can create a REPL on the console.  Candidly, although the updated port provides a test target, I notice that I've not yet built the port under a testing configuration.

Regardless, I hope that the patch may be of interest. I'll try to conduct some further testing with the patched ports tree, locally. I believe it might be usable as-is. 

Of course, it may need further build testing with poudriere - such as with all docs options enabled, to catch any missing deps - and testing under the test target.

lang/scsh: Undelete and update port

The pkg-descr may need further updating - just noticed. The code seems to work, at least for one local build
Comment 2 Sean Champ 2021-04-01 15:31:30 UTC
For the patched port, I've tested the build under poudriere, and tested under do-test.

The initial attachment on this bugzilla topic does not include an update for /usr/ports/MOVED. I'll put a patch together that would remove the entry:
lang/scsh||2014-09-10|Not staged

Under make(do-test) scsh's own test tgt will run some testing code with the scsh.image as built. An initial REPL screen will be displayed, but the testing code itself will run without interaction required. 

I'll attach an updated patch to a later comment
