x11-fonts/noto-lite port

As it is now, the full noto package is too big ~450 MB considering that it includes lots of fonts, but they are rarely used.

noto is a nice font but 450 MB is too much. More for languages that never will be used.

Attached is a patch for a new port noto-lite that just uses the "basic" fonts, but covers western europe langs, russian, maybe others.

This new package is ~4 MB.


This is a copy of x11-fonts/noto , but as mentioned in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=201251#c8 the file is not fetchable from main site.

Also pending is fetch only the fonts and reduce download size.

I found that the Noto package taught me about several languages that I did not know about. However, for the 💩 that I do on a daily basis, the noto-lite package will suffice. Kevlo? This saves me about 447 MB...
